I was so excited to see Book-alicious Mama post that she had joined in a read along of The Book Thief, ahead of the November release of the much anticipated movie! I went to see the write up at It’s All About Books, and decided to join in too. Go on over there and check out the plan-Hope you join too!
The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak’s unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul.
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time.

So happy you are joining in!
Thanks for joining! Is this a first time through for you, or have you read it before?
I read it about 4 years ago and loved it! Now I can have my 13 and 15 yr olds read it after I finish!
I think I’m going to join in…
Hope you do-I can’t wait to reread this!
I loved this book. Might I suggest you make sure to have the tissues handy for parts of it? 😉
Thanks for signing up! I look forward to seeing your thoughts on the book! Thanks for the shout out for our Read Along!
