    I already read The Book Thief and the The Guernsey book and they are both fabulous books. If they are picked, I'll probably read them again. Everyone should read them. :)

    i LOVED The Book Thief and agree with Karen, everyone should read! I'm 1/3 way into The Guernsey book. . . going to check out the other titles as well.

    Okay this is bugging me... I've been reading about the other books here to decide which one to vote for... book #3 sounds SO familiar to me and I know I've read another book with a VERY similar storyline, but I can't think for the life of me what book that was and I know it wasn't this one. LOL! Good grief. It's going to bug me until I figure it out... :)

    I think we'll use the top two for club selections. We'll probably use the runner up for March. :)

    I just borrowed "The Book Theif" from my digital library... put a hold on "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" - going to look into borrowing the other titles from the physical library. :)
