Book Beginnings: Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

"Lost in the shadows of the shelves, I almost fall off the ladder."

I had pictured those rolling library ladders, so this sounded ominous but not terribly. Only later did I find out this bookstore's shelving is three stories high, so this is actually very dangerous and scary that he could fall off the ladder.

A story that has bookstore in the title and opens in a bookstore has got to be good!
Here's the link to my Friday post: WEB OF TYRANNY.
