I confess I have yet to read Markus Zusak’s acclaimed novel that has garnered various writing awards and on The New York Times bestseller list for over 230 weeks. But from I have read on the internet, the film – like the novel – promises to be a profound tearjerker.

With performances from acting heavyweights Geoffrey Rush and  Emily Watson, might The Book Thief have “Oscar” written all over it?  Guess we ‘ll know early next year. In the meantime, pick up a copy of the book at a Public Library near you. (Click here to check availability.) Have a great weekend!
