Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.

If you were going to be trapped in one book, which would you choose?

At the moment it would be Sleuth on Skates by Clémentine Beauvais because I’d love to run around Cambridge solving mysteries, but without there being any real danger.

I have a very random question, but in which country do you live? I own two copies of The Book Thief - one printed in the US and one printed in Germany (in German.) The German one has the same cover as the picture you posted yesterday, but your book is in English. (I'm strangely curious about different printings of books.)

Do you mean the one in my 25 Books for Book Lovers post? You probably the UK edition if it’s in English! It’s the original UK cover (but there’s also a different YA cover).
