Since having B, my reading has slowed down quite a bit. Currently on my Kindle is The Book Thief. I haven’t finished it yet. I was hoping to now that it is out on Blu-Ray and DVD, but I feel I have to finish the book first. I’m about half way done and it’s been slow going, but I know if I watch the movie, the book will sit unfinished.
About the movie:
Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” (Leonard Maltin, Indiewire) story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush* and OSCAR® Nominee Emily Watson**). Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father. When the couple then takes in Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him. Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).
Purchase the movie on Amazon.

I’m excited to check out this discussion guide once I’m finished with the book as well and pair it up with the movie.
I have one copy of the blu-ray to give to one lucky reader. Please use the rafflecopter form below.
