I'm a simple person who just likes long walks in the book aisle.

By Marcus Zusak. It's an amzing novel that follows a girl in Nazi Germany from Death's point of view. It's clever and well written and tear inducing at points. It gives an interesting insight into Nazi Germany and is compelling to read. The kiss. . . So sad.

    I'm actually reading this right now. I just wish it had less language. The story is really interesting so far though. I'm interested to see where it is going to go.

    I agree about the language too, I've just started reading it myself.

    I know. I'm trying to decide if I want to continue to read it or not. I've actually started crossing out the language with a Sharpie. : P I really want to see how it plays out though. So, we'll see. I'll probably take a break to read Divergent. Please tell me if it is worth the read!

I loved it when we read this in Jill Dixon's Read with The Best: American Literature two years ago. Cracked me up.

Henry James - What Maisie Knew Currently reading this and amazed at the timelessness of the tale. Written in the 1890s, a bitter, selfish divorced couple uses their daughter as a pawn to punish each other. Written from the perceptive perspective of the child, it could have been set in modern times and other than the language been the same.

Jane Eyre- this BBC version is the best rendition I've watched. Very true to the book.
