Cafe Library is up and running again!We are going to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I've read this book already and it's GREAT! Marina asked for this to be our first book club book this year, and of course I said YES! She has also agreed to lead the discussion. YAY!

Summary: 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. 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.
