I’ve kept a record of books I’ve read for the past five years. Each year, I average about fifty books.
This past year, one book from my list stood out.
Although long, this novel left me wishing it wouldn’t end. I lingered over language, so beautifully rendered. The narrator of this book was Death.
With wisdom beyond his years, Markus Zusak created a phenomenal piece of literature in The Book Thief.
You can see an interview with Mr. Zusak here.
This weekend, I’m looking forward to reading one of his earlier novels – I am the Messenger.
What’s on your reading list for this weekend?
