Once upon a time I was an avid reader. Life got in the way for a while and I put the books down. A recent change in circumstance means I have more spare time once and I have been bitten by the bug again.

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

I have been waiting to read this book for a long time.


Even when I wasn't reading, and before I embraced e-readers I had a copy sat by my night-stand for what felt like, and indeed probably was, years.


Right up my alley, and I have no doubt it will become a much loved and cherished novel when I do get around to it.


That time is not now, however, so I have again put it to one side, ready for the time in my life when I feel I can embrace it.


My dad died two years ago, my sister died in April and my mum died six weeks later.


I am, quite simply, not ready to read a book like this yet.
