So I have seen the trailer for the movie The Book Thief twice in the last week or two.
And I teared up BOTH TIMES, I suspect that if my daughters ever actually read this blog they would both be laughing right now since they have seen many movies with me over the years.
I made the error earlier today of borrowing the book from my book-full wife and in-between class grading and work, and doing technology blog writing which I am behind on, I started reading it this afternoon.
When I got to page 37 and read:
* * * A DEFINITION NOT FOUND * * *
IN THE DICTIONARY
Not leaving: an act of trust and love,
often deciphered by children
My first thought was that I hoped that my daughters thought that of me. My second was I was going to hard a hard time with the book too.
