I'm introducing a new segment for the fall/winter called
BOOK FUSS FRIDAY.
I thought it would be fun to discuss books that have been fussed about around the Net or that I personally want to fuss about. I will probably take some quotes from others who want to fuss about a book too. The one caveat: you can't fuss about your own book. :-)
So basically I'll talk about a BOOK, it'll be every FRIDAY and there will be some FUSS.
Hence, the genius post title.
I know. I'm good.
Anyhew, on with the post... I've been seeing The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak on Facebook and Goodreads a lot lately. In fact, it's hard to believe this book was published in 2005 and not just last week.
I was at a Labor Day BBQ last weekend and I happened to mention this book to a friend. She says to me, "That's weird. I just bought that book on Saturday." (Her daughter has to read it as a Freshman in high school) She then went on to tell me that as she was leaving the bookstore, a woman saw the book in her hands and had to stop her to tell her that The Book Thief was one of her favorite books. LOL
Sheesh. Talk about a fuss!
So naturally, I went to my public library to check it out. I'm on the wait list now.
Hopefully, I'll get it this week. The librarian told me I'm first on the list. (Yay!)
How about you? Ever read The Book Thief? Have you being seeing a lot of fuss about it recently?
**If you have a book you'd like to fuss about or have been seeing some fuss about a book you haven't read yet, email me (jennifer AT jennifershirk DOT com) I want to see what all the fuss is about too!**
Also, HUGE CONGRATS to a few of my bloggy buddies:
