Book and Film Discussion: The Book Thief

Our March book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It has won numerous awards and has spent 375 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The film is directed by 

The book is narrated by Death. He tells the tale of a young girl living in Nazi Germany in 1939 who befriends a young Jewish man who is hiding in her home during the escalation of World War II

We'll meet again at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse because we're back to the middle of the month rather than the beginning. (The first Monday of the month is the Picturehouse's pub quiz which comes very highly recommended.)

Amazon has the book, as does your local bookshop, and the movie will be released on February 26th. You can watch the trailer here.

Happy reading and viewing!

    Hi everyone. I'm really not very well today but I think it's too late to cancel the meetup (I know not everyone has their iPhones with them all the time etc!)

    Is there anyone who's attending tonight who can volunteer to lead the discussion? I would really like to sleep off this unpleasant bug!!

    I've lost my voice... I was hoping for a last minute recovery, but still squeaking, and don't want to make anyone else sick so will stay away... Looking forward to April though! Sorry for the short notice.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
