    I think I was responsible for the ‘chew on the words’ comment. Haven’t read Girl but may. Love what you said and totally agree with your Thief comments. Sobbed when things happened, I don’t know what the author would have done himself when he was finished. It would be a terrible loss, I’m sure.

    Yep, Lindsay, I’m pretty sure you were. Wouldn’t it be amazing to someday write a book where you loved your characters so much?

    LOL, I love your comment “he goes all Ikea and describes everything in the room” – so true! I bought the second one but I haven’t read it just yet…
    Did you share the “pick-uppable words” (that’s a completely cool phrase) comment with us a book club? I don’t remember it, but I wish I had thought of it myself. I know I was thinking that you couldn’t do The Book Thief as a read aloud/audio book because you would miss so much of what is on the page.

    Now that you mention it, Krista, you’re right – a lot of the “pick-uppability” comes from the visual words on the page.
