Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore

13538873Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore was suggested to me by a fellow book-obsessed friend. But, it was suggested with a caveat that it was unusual and that I might not like it. I have to say, though, by page 58, I was totally hooked. I liked the main character, I wanted to find out more, and I was captivated by the writing. I am so glad she suggested it to me. And, the more I have read about it, the more I have learned how much respect the author garnered with this novel. It was chosen one of the best 100 books of 2012 by the Sn Francisco Chronicle, was a NYT Editor’s Choice, and was on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction Best Seller list and the NPR Fiction Bestseller List. The fact that the cover glows in the dark is pretty cool too. I am so glad I pulled it out of the stack ahead of some others. The long weekend and unexpected snow days have been very good to me!! You should run out to get this unusual and captivating book. You won’t be sorry that you did.
