I read Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore.
Mr. Penumbra's library has a small section of current books in the front of the store. But in the Backlister's section, from floor to ceiling there are tomes of manuscripts written in codes dated back hundreds of years ago. Only a handful of registered borrowers can check them out. What is in these volumes? Can Google help to solve the mystery? This amazing, fantastic fiction comes with a clever cover. It glows in the dark!

Founding Myths by Ray Raphael
