Book 19 of 80
Alright, so here we go. Germany! The Book Thief. I already explained a little about this book in a previous post, so I’ll just say that I’m glad I’m able to add this book to my list. Not only will it please my students, but I feel like it’s a book I should read.
An interesting fact: While this book was touted as YA in the US and the UK, it was actually marketed toward adults in Zusak’s native Australia.
I gave my grandma this book for Christmas two years ago, and she loved it. I routinely give my Grandma books for Christmas. And sometimes I give her books that I have purchased for myself, have been sitting around on my bookshelf, and I haven’t read yet. I think of it as industrious gift giving. Don’t tell her. She doesn’t have internet, so I don’t think she’ll find out.
