Red Shirts by John Scalzi
8/10
A great book that was fun to read. It's nice to come across Sci-Fi that is both well written and funny. The adventures of a cadet on a space ship who figures out that wearing a red shirt and going on away missions can be hazardous to your health, so he figures out a plan to stay alive.

Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Book Store by Robin Sloan
9/10
A wonderful book with just the right amount of quirkiness and whimsy to suit my tastes to a tee. An unemployed designer gets a job at a 24 hour bookstore that gets barely any customers, and the ones that he does get are strange and never buy any books; they just borrow them.
