    I finally finished it :)
    Hearing everyone talk about parts of the ending helped me push through to the end. I'm glad it's over but am very curious to see how they did the movie ;)

    I finished this book in 2 days because it was that good :-) I'm so sorry not to be able to join after all due to work schedule conflicts - I was looking forward very much to the discussion with everyone. I hope to join at another get-together.

    Hi - This is my first time attending. I am just looking to clarify the location...Are we meeting at the Archstone apartments? If so, is there an apartment number I am missing? Or is it just the 555 W Middlefield address? Thanks! Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow evening! Christine

    I've been meaning to join a book club ever since I moved to Mountain View almost two years ago. I've also been meaning to read The Book Thief, so this works out perfectly. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
