There are very few books that I know - beyond a doubt - that I'm going to treasure for the rest of my life. These are the books that get under my skin and lodge themselves in my heart and make their presence felt every day of my life. These are the books I will return to over and over again for years to come - and they will ALWAYS have a place on my shelves. No matter how old I get.
The Book Thief is now one of them.
