Awesome Book!

One of the best books I've read all year!
I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak for my book club...just in time too, since we meet the day after tomorrow. It was in one word: AWESOME! Not only was the writing brilliant, but the story was compelling too!

The story is narrated by death and is about a little girl in 1940's Germany who started stealing books before she could even read them. It made me laugh and cry and go through an entire range of emotions. I would recomend this book to anyone who loves to read...and even to some that don't.

In knitting news:

I am 3 seams away from finishing my new top. I really wanted to get it done last night, but after doing the shoulders, my eyelids started drooping and the next thing I knew, my boyfriend was waking me up. So much for that goal...hopefully I'll get it done today...hopefully being the opperative word.

Keep an eye out tomorrow and hopefully there'll be a picture of it...

Tomorrow's post might be a little later than usual since I have to take the boyfriend to the airport before work...


  1. Will have to see if the library has that book. I usually read contemporary books but love to try new authors.

  5. Can't wait to see the new top!

    And careful while dozing while knitting - knitting needles and eyes are a bad combination..heehee

  6. Oh, sounds great! I'll have to look that one up. Thanks for the recommendation. ;)

  7. I read this book about two months ago and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! It is told from such a unique perpsective. I highly recommend it also!
