The Book Thief Paperback Giveaway

The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak
Paperback, 550 pages
Published December 18th 2007
ISBN 0375842209

It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.

The Book Thief is one of the books I have on my must read list for 2012. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it. And lucky for you, I own an extra paperback copy that I am going to give away! To enter to win simply comment below with one book you hope to read this year. Giveaway is open internationally. Ends January 24, 2012.

    I haven’t read this one so I am trying out my luck with your giveaway. Aside from Book Thief, I’m looking forward reading George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones (and if time and budget permits, the whole series), John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, and books in my TBR.

    Thank you for the giveaway
