The Book Thief by Markus ZusakThe Book Thief is Markus Zusak’s debut novel. The novel is narrated by death. Death will visit the book thief three times. It is an angry but beautiful coming of age tale. I loved this moving and thought provoking book about Lieser and her foster family on Himmler...

  Sometimes I feel so left out of the loop when people talk about a new book they are reading. It's not that I don't read, but I just don't read as much as I'd like or as much as I used to. The reason being is that I'm a writer working on a memoir while I have a novel on hold.  I'm also a...

I'm the first one to admit I'm not very into new year resolutions. I am far more interested in listing what I'm glad happened in the year that's soon to be passed. Now I've slightly changed. I made a new year resolution when 2007 turned 08, and now, I have a day to complete it. People usually make...

I was amazed by many things at BEA, but none more than the ability to walk up to a salesperson for, say, Random House, and talk a bit, maybe get a free book, and give them a bookmark or a book in return. It was easy and fun, and who knows where it will lead? The worst part is, I promised a...
