Mr Penumbra's 24 hour Bookshop

I haven't commented on a book for a while so here's a novel I randomly picked up at the library and have enjoyed:
I really liked this quirky book! What drew me in was the mix of an "old world" book shop somehow forming an alliance with the latest digital technology.
Since I still love real books and also enjoy keeping up with the convenience of e-reader, Kindle books etc  this sounded like a book for me. The added touch of mystery, a puzzle to solve and who really would crack the code made it a light hearted but intriguing book. After finishing it I Googled (!) the name of a couple of the key historical characters to see if they were "real" and somewhat to my surprise they were!
