This month's title "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. "The Book Thief" is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul. The year is 1939. The place is Nazi Germany. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is 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.
