The Book Thief

Steve is hosting this...I am just setting up event. We hope to see you there!

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.

    I'm giving 5 stars to the discussion - it was among the best I had participated in since joining the group. (Four stars to the book itself)

      Erik and Crickett still own the business. They just let their franchise expire so as to avoid paying 9% of sales and getting little if anything for it. Only their name is different now.

    I'm moving everyone on the waiting list to the second meeting. If you can't make that, re-sign up for the waiting list I guess.

    August 17, 2013

  • Steve H.

    Anyone on the waiting list want to host a second meeting?

    • Marian B.

      Hi Steve! I pick Tuesday, Sept 3, 7 pm, Happy Rabbit. I would do Monday but some folks might be just getting back from labor day travels. Let me know next steps. Also my cell is[masked] if that helps.

    • Steve H.

      The over-flow meeting is set-up. For those on the waiting list, feel free to change your RSVP into Marian's night. Thanks!

    I made it to page 91 of The Book Thief. Do not want to continue reading; too dark, too much death and too depressing. I do read for pleasure and I got no pleasure from this book. This means someone on the waiting list can take my spot.

    Folsom Costco has The Book Thief right now for $8.97.
