A poignant children's book that is a young girl's letter to a friend recounting her trip South in the pre-Civil War days. This was one of the first books that really moved me as a child and marked the beginning of my interest in African-American history and civil rights.

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.
I am constantly amazed at how writers find new ways to tell a story. The Book Thief is set during WWII, with Death as the narrator.

Books Worth Reading: the book thief
The Book Thief, Markus Zusak: SO GOOD. Makes me cry every time I read it. Probably my favorite book, which is a hard thing to do.
On my "to read" list. Very rarely a book comes out that steals my breath away. The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak is a revelation. Narrated by Death, this story follows Leisel as she steals books in Nazi Germany
The Book Thief, Markus Zusak One of my favourite books.
The Book Thief, Markus Zusak: The book is narrated by death, so right away you know it’s going to make you think about the time we have on Earth. And as you’ll be reminded by reading this, time is precious. We just finished this book for our book club. It is a must read.
The simplicity of some books allows for everyone to make the story their own. "Sometimes, there's just no way to hold back the river."

David Sedaris is by far my favorite humorist. Perhaps it's his being raised in a large family that creates the connection? It's not the gay man thing...

My favorite books by David Sedaris - MUST READS!
David Sedaris...so worth reading!
David Sedaris, "Me Talk Pretty One Day" was on the required reading list in my freshman year of college. I immediately fell in love with the author. He's sarcastic, gritty, painfully honest, and everyone in his family is a tad bit insane! I have most of his books, including, "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," "Naked," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim", & finally the ever delightful, "Holidays on Ice." I have yet to read his latest...."Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk", But i'm looking forward to it!
Konigsburg won her second Newberry Medal for this book; well-deserved. A beautiful story about friendship between an unlikely group.

He’s always been a happy little utensil. But lately, he feels like life as a spoon just isn’t cutting it. He thinks Fork, Knife, and The Chopsticks all have it so much better than him. But do they? And what do they think about Spoon? A book for all ages, Spoon serves as a gentle reminder to celebrate what makes us each special.
Great book for kids that highlights why it's fun to be ourselves.

First book after 'The World is Flat' (which was also a bestseller in the Netherlands ) and Friedman does not disappoint. This instant classic is about the green revolution in an ever flattening and hyper connected world. "Thomas L. Friedman—fearless, incisive, forward-looking, and rich in surprising common sense about the world we live in today."
Friedman never disappoints. This one in particular will make you more aware of your world and your impact upon it.

My sister swooped on the Nancy Drew, so I defaulted to the scrappier Trixie Belden. I'll always be happy with the choice and am thrilled when I stumble upon a hardback edition.
