The Book Thief

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak|| $14.99 - Buy Now

This book is one of the first books that I was able to finish reading in English.
The story takes place in Germany during WWII, with a girl named Liesel who is so devoted to reading she steals books when she has a chance.  The time period and setting might let you predict what kind of book this is, but there is so much more to this gem.  If you love reading, if the first page grips you, this is the book for you.  Sit in your favorite couch and get absorbed!
