Currently, I'm reading 5 books simultaneously.  

What am I thinking?  

I don't normally pick that many up at a time, but they all showed up at about the same time through various circumstances.  2 of them are sequels to other books I have read, and I will write about those when I am finished.  One of the books however, has made such an impression on me that I wanted to get the word out before I finish it!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is fantastic, incredible, heartbreaking, thought provoking and wonderful.  I'm about half way through and I'll let you know if I still feel the same way when I finish it.  I'd heard about this book for quite a while, but my pile of "to reads" was so big I put it off and put it off.  I have fallen in love with the characters and yes, even the narrator.  (If you know who the narrator is you will think I am very odd.) 

This weekend will be a challenge to get anything done!  


  1. The Book Thief is one of the best books I've read in the last ten years. Enjoy!

  2. Hey girl, I realize I am not actually commenting on your post. I have read more than one book at a time... though I don't think ever five.

    I finally tagged you on HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY. Hope you like your videos. Yeah, you got two today.

  3. So I guess its hard to juggle five books and blogging as well! We miss you!

  4. I've just started following, but I hope you've made some progress on the five books! Good Luck!

  5. Purple Cow, I'm back. Can't say why I left exactly. It just happened. (kind of sounds like a lover's quarrel doesn't it!) But thank you for missing me. I've missed keeping up with you too!

    Robin, Thanks for the video. I really wish we could watch a show together. I would love to hear your insight.

    Melanie, I agree wholeheartedly. It's partly the reason I have been gone so long. Maybe I'll explain another time.

    Snide Server, welcome aboard!
