Someone on Twitter yesterday asked if anyone ever gave away books that they don’t like. And my answer is NO! I would NEVER! In fact, lest you think I’m just trying to get rid of books I already have, I’m not giving you my own copies. I own all the books I’m giving away, but I’m buying additional copies for the prizes. No one touches my books!
So here is another Knopf book that is actually one of my favorite books ever. It definitely makes my all-time top ten list, probably even five. It’s hard to choose a number one spot.
If you haven’t read THE BOOK THIEF, I’m telling you right now that you must. And even if you have read it but you don’t own it, you know you want to own it. Such wonderful characters, a wealth of gorgeous words, a unique narrator, and a hauntingly beautiful story. And even though it is historical fiction, it is true.
Just tell me you want it in the comments, that is all. And of course mention FB, tweets, blogs, and all that.
I kind of like this cover better. What do you think?
