Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore: A Novel | Robin Sloan
A gleeful and exhilarating tale of global conspiracy, complex code-breaking, high-tech data visualization, young love, rollicking adventure, and the secret to eternal life—mostly set in a hole-in-the-wall San Francisco bookstoreThe Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone—and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything, instead "checking out" impossibly obscure volumes from strange corners of the store, all according to some elaborate, long-standing arrangement with the gnomic Mr. Penumbra. The store must be a front for something larger, Clay concludes, and soon he's embarked on a complex analysis of the customers' behavior and roped his friends into helping to figure out just what's going on. But once they bring their findings to Mr. Penumbra, it turns out the secrets extend far outside the walls of the bookstore.With irresistible brio and dazzling intelligence, Robin Sloan has crafted a literary adventure story for the twenty-first century, evoking both the fairy-tale charm of Haruki Murakami and the enthusiastic novel-of-ideas wizardry of Neal Stephenson or a young Umberto Eco, but with a unique and feisty sensibility that's rare to the world of literary fiction. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is exactly what it sounds like: an establishment you have to enter and will never want to leave, a modern-day cabinet of wonders ready to give a jolt of energy to every curious reader, no matter the time of day.

went to alot of little free libraries yesterday with some good friends and I ended up picking these two books 🙂📚

“Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. More than 75,000 public book exchanges are registered with the organization.”

umbrellagirl Those were both great reads. Enjoy! 4d

A laid-off Silicon Valley tech worker finds a job at a peculiar bookstore owned by an eccentric proprietor, and falls into an exciting adventure. It‘s a fun read, raises the question- are books just stories and ideas on paper and ink in the era of digitising?
And if you have this edition, check out the cover - it actually glows in the dark! 😎

Soaking up the summer breezes and finishing this book I started on my trip to San Francisco. “My boy, there is no immortality that does not begin with friendship and work done with care”. I only wish I could type this in Gerritszoon- then we‘d know the secret-43 I am reliably informed. A bit more sci fi than bookish but still a fun read. Live on!

rretzler I enjoyed this book as well. There is a companion short that goes along with it if you‘re interested in more Mr Penumbra: 3w
Booksnchill @rretzler thanks! I will check it out! 3w

Finished off this audiobook (5/18) just as I was walking up to my door with my coffee in hand. I really enjoyed it! I could see it making a great movie, if they were to adapt it properly. Definitely gets a recommendation from me.

I‘m probably not going to get too many more steps in tonight, so I thought I‘d share my steps now. Then it‘s back to studying for me! 😉

Clwojick @Ash.on.the.line 😂😂 I guess it depends on what you consider nice. It was a high of 9 degrees. A lot of people say they would freeze here, but I‘m used to it. We have VERY long winters here, so once it hits 15 it‘s T-shirt and shorts weather for most people. It does get up to the 40s, but we really only have two months of summer. 1mo

On Monday, I tracked how far it is from my apartment to Tim Hortons.
So, today I needed a little study break, and really wanted to see what happened next in this book.... so I figured I could get the rest of my daily steps in by walking to Tim‘s for coffee.

Hey, find what motivated you, right? Maybe I‘ll track how many steps to the bookstore... that would be sure to get me moving 😂😂😂

monalyisha I‘ve been to Tim Horton‘s so few times in my life (there are none nearby!) but it‘s the first place I ever had mint coffee, so it‘s got a special place in my heart. 🖤🍃 1mo
Clwojick When they first opened up they had something called a “hot smoothie” and it was basically like a caffeinated flavoured hot milkshake. It was amazing. They had raspberry, mint, Irish cream, vanilla, and butterscotch. They were so good. I almost cried when they stopped carrying them. 😂 @monalyisha 1mo
monalyisha @Clwojick My theory is that it must‘ve been the branding. 😆 There‘s something about the term “hot milkshake” that just doesn‘t seem right... 1mo
Clwojick I don‘t think they branded it that way. That‘s just how I remember it tasting. Lol. @monalyisha they sold it for like 5+ years than started Coming out with all these fancy lattes and whatnot. 1mo

Two days left for week 1 of #BookFitnessChallenge, so even though I woke up, and wanted to immediately shove my brain back into my textbooks... I made myself keep up with (new) my morning routine. Tea, audiobook, walk to the lake. 💙

I am packing and preparing for my annual one week painting trip- this time to my favorite place to vacation in the USA, San Francisco. Rewatching my SFmovies and packing my books- have read and listened to and watched the Tales of the City series but Mr. Penumbra is a first time read for me. I will be there on the 27th for Independent Bookstore Day so although I will be missing the day at Parnassus my second favorite is within walking distance😍📚

This should have totally worked for me! I'm the classic book and IT nerd so a bookstore plus google plus a puzzle to be solved is the perfect recipe for an awesome read. And it was for about 60% of the way and then I wasn't sure where it was going anymore. 🤔The audio was great, but overall just an ok read. #Booked2019 #remindsyouofyourhappyplace

Ugh, it's been a rough day. Some of you guys know that my sister is a drug addict and mom is an alcoholic. My sister was finally in recovery and doing well, and she just relapsed today after my mom enabled her. I had to finally cut the cord with my mom and tell her she needs to get help or I'm done. It just hurts. I just want to lay in bed and escape into literary worlds forever. Why can't that be a thing. 😔

A decrepit bookstore and its mysterious owner. A secret society and the mystery they are trying to solve. I should have loved all of this. But it dragged in the middle and so many solutions popped up a little too conveniently. The last third of the book redeemed itself and regained the feeling of suspense that had been missing. I‘d put this more between a Pick and a So-So.
