Nick and I went to Barnes & Noble in Leominster today to buy our niece a birthday present, but one does not simply walk into Barnes & Noble and leave without buying a new book.
I mean, LOOK AT THIS COVER! How could I not buy it?
And besides, I got this GORGEOUS new bookcase yesterday, so I obviously have a lot of space to fill! But I digress…
The Librarian of Auschwitz was on a table display for new releases (it looks like it was originally published in Spanish in 2012, but the English version appears to have just come out in October). The cover art is what snagged my attention, but I actually picked it up because the title reminded me so much of The Book Thief, which I read (and loved) last March.
