2012 book 279

Robin Sloan's Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
This book--about a guy who gets a job as a clerk at the titular bookstore, which has a mysterious purpose--is, weirdly, a love letter to typography and Google. It's also surprisingly adventure-filled, as well as filled with lovable eccentrics. Definitely a fun read, though maybe it wraps up a bit too neatly. B+.
