I haven’t posted in a while but of course, I am still reading. I finished The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and it is a wonderful book about World War II. It is told from two views one being the Grim Reaper and another about a young girl. Very moving, very good. Another book we have talked about before but I just finally read is The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne, this is also about World War II. This is from a German boy’s view, his father is Comandant of Auschwitz and he befriends a young boy in the camp, secretly. This book was also made into a movie, which we just acquired. Mrs. Murray is reading Corsair by Clive Cussler, it is one of the Oregon Files books. Cussler is always a good read. Check out our New Materials page to see what is there, movies like Twilight, the movie The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Australia and more. Books are in by Mary Higgins Clark, her daughter Carol Higgins Clark, Harlan Coben and Diane Mott Davidson.
