Clay Jannon was unemployed, another victim of the financial downturn. His job hunting led him to a local bookstore, and was immediately hired as the night clerk. It’s not unusual that there were fewer shoppers during the night –it was mostly dull, unproductive, and quiet. The only intriguing parts of each night are the borrowers; those eccentric people whom he has to log by description. With that much time to kill every night, Clay started some very deep poking, and soon found himself waist-deep into a mystery that may change his life forever. 

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore is our book –a book lover’s book. It talks about the bound versus the electronics; the merger of both; and the infinity of the written word. It talks about the mysteries of life –love, passion, ambition, and hope.

Clay’s narration is very engaging; witty and believable. I was really sorry I did not read it sooner. It was a deliciously fun read to have. I enjoyed every minute of it; no wonder I don’t want it to end.

I highly recommend this book, go get a copy now.
