The last book I finished, if I remember it right, was Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief. It was the first time I have ever cried over a book. The trailer for the movie of the same title came out a few days ago, and it looks really promising. I’m expecting myself to cry over the movie as well—or would pre-empting myself prevent that?

(Because really, you only need two words: Rudy Steiner.)

"In reality, they were distracted letters, intended to keep the coals alive without putting her hand in the fire, while Florentino Ariza burned himself alive in every line."

Today I hoarded more books, but I don’t feel too bad ‘cause I got all four for PhP225: Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things and Anansi Boys, Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Great Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe! I just inserted the exclamation point for feeling. It’s safe to say it was a great day.

Still need to catch up on my reading, but I find it a lovely coincidence that I’m reading a book about a book (with a book within a book) on World Book Day. To more pages—cheers!

"I know that big people don’t like questions from children. They can ask all the questions they like, How’s school? Are you a good boy? Did you say your prayers? but if you ask them did they say their prayers you might be hit on the head."

Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt
