The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (Part 1)
You love The Book Thief so much we’re doing two posts! Here’s the first:
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein for a moving wartime friendship
Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne for a child trying to make sense of war
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon for a story where books hold the answer
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer for hope against the odds
(for minivinnie, phantasticdanosaur, shadowofemirates)

My favourite female writer.
…Yeah, I have no excuse for this one.
In need of a Monday pick-me-up? Take 10 minutes and watch Rachel Fershleiser’s TEDx talk, “Why I heart the Bookternet" and I guarantee you’ll be full of optimism and sunshine.
1. That dress, those tights.
2. How can I achieve this level of public speaking excellence?
Aw thanks! Please, Pollyanna out with me on the great stuff authors, bookstores, and publishers are doing to embrace internet communities.
The brilliant and beautiful Rachel Fershleiser on why the bookternet is rad. Yes to all of these things.
seriously such a great idea

Ava Gardner reading a book with a red cover.
Gardner’s early education was sketchy; by 1945, she had read two books, the Bible and “Gone with the Wind.” In later life, she more than made up for this lack by continual self-education.
in stories featuring aliens, they’re always like “on my planet this never happens!” or “in my culture, this differs from your human culture.” and that’s neat and all because i like worldbuilding and all that jazz but wouldn’t it be fun if they just. couldn’t do that?
