#Friday Reads (9)

I started reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak this Monday but I've been so tired lately that I wasn't feeling particularly inclined to read.

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, 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 before he is marched to Dachau.

The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

I'm about 130 pages in and I think the story has a great concept and it's really engrossing - it's just unfortunate that lately I haven't been in the mood for reading.
