Mr Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

  • This weird and wonderful book about books is Da Vinci Code, Shadow of the Wind, the Three Investigators, Dungeons and Dragons and In the Plex (such a coincidence I just read this last book about Google just recently) all rolled into one.
  • A fun read for nerds, geeks and bibliophiles. Steve Jobs would have loved this, given his interest in calligraphy, fonts and typefaces.
  • My rating : 5/5. Delightful.
  • [PS : There is no Gerritszoon font on my Mac. The author made all that up. The Google Book Scanner makes an appearance as well; this I think is real].
