Reader's Corner - October 2012 Update

"Damn, I feel sorry for Death."
I know this entry is long overdue. Been busy, busy with all sort of projects (more about that later).

But in October (remember way back then?), I did manage to finish Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (book review here) and I started Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough (book review pending).

I also listened to the audiobook of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Narrated by Death, it's the story of a young German girl during World War II. And it's a bit awkward crying your eyes out while you're stopped at a light. Hard to explain to the car next to you that this story is just so ... no word adequately explains the punch to the solar plexus this book delivers.

But I do have a bonus video of Markus Zusak explaining how the book came to be.

Happy reading!
