I picked this up on account of the cover and finished it in a sitting. Dark Run is Guardians of the Galaxy meets Firefly meets Han Solo with more whiskey. Space Pirates, misfits, and one-liners: what more does one need? Can’t wait to read the next book by Mike Brooks.

This week, over 200 booksellers from around the country gathered in Portland to attend an American Booksellers Association conference called Children’s Institute, for education about children’s books. The conference kicked off with a reception at Powell’s Books. Because I’d read the above recommendation from Alex, I knew to pick up my own copy of Dark Run as a book souvenir. What’s the last book souvenir you bought?
