Giveaway: The Book Thief Prize Pack

Summary: The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that will be in movie theaters on November 15, 2013, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who 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. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time. -- Knopf

When THE BOOK THIEF by Marcus Zusak came out years ago, I knew I had to read this novel about a young girl during World War II. I ended up loving this book... like pretty much everyone else who read it. I've been telling myself that I need to read it again since it's been so long; however, I never found the right time to do it. That is until the past week or so.

I actually started THE BOOK THIEF last week in anticipation of the new movie, and it's exactly what I remembered. A beautifully written and touching story about a young girl and her love of books. I haven't had the chance to finish it yet, but I expect to do so later in the week.

THE BOOK THIEF will be in select theaters November 8. (Of course, I live in Pennsyltucky so I'm going to have to wait awhile!) THE BOOK THIEF is based on the beloved bestselling bookthat tells the inspirational story of a spirited and courageous young girl who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a new family in World War II Germany. The film stars Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie NĂ©lisse and is directed by Brian Percival. Personally, I can't wait to see it!

Taking many tissues to the movie... I can't wait to see it! The book was so good, so heartbreaking. Love the graphic, too (about words -- the one right there at the bottom of your post). Thank you for doing this giveaway so that more people will hear about the movie (and book)! :)
