In March 2014 I sent out this book, along with two others, to be read and written in by people all over Australia. This was the result. It is beautiful and wonderful and I will be forever grateful to everyone who participated. This is my favourite copy of The Book Thief now.
One small fact: you are going to die. Despite every effort, no one lives forever. Sorry to be such a spoiler. My advice is when the time comes, don’t panic. It doesn’t seem to help. I guess I should introduce myself properly. But then again, you’ll meet me soon enough. Not before your time, of course. I make it a policy to avoid the living. Well, except sometimes. Once in a very long time, I can’t help myself. I get interested. The book thief (2013)
