Full of adventure, 80s nostalgia, puzzles, and "nerdy romance" Ready Player One ($18) is a novel about protagonist Wade Watts, a man who prefers to spend his life playing in OASIS, a virtual reality world, rather than live in the grim world of reality. Through the novel Wade goes on a quest to find three keys left by OASIS' creator Halliday, hoping he'll inherit his vast fortune left behind. Although OASIS is a virtual reality, the dangers associated with finding the keys are real. Full of action, drama, and suspense, this is a book you won't be able to put down.
