German Literature Month – A Quick Update

Like last year, Lizzy is compiling all the reviews in one big final post which will be a great resource for anyone interested in German literature.

But since part of the appeal of this event is to find new books and new blogs I thought you might be keen to check out what’s happening while the event is still ongoing. That’s why I have set up a German Literature Month 2012 Page where I am collecting all the posts. Today is day 3 of this year’s German Literature Month and we have already 20 posts. That’s so amazing.

Please check out the posts, especially the intro posts are interesting as they contain book lists and reading plans something we all love to see.

  1. Thanks for the update, Caroline! I see some old friends there and some new-to-me blogs. Looking forward to exploring them and reading the reviews. I just finished my first book and am hoping to start the second book sometime in the evening. Happy reading!

  2. Thanks for the track-back to my site and it’s lovely to see so many bloggers involved with German Lit Month! Very useful list and I’m eager to see what others are reading! 🙂

    • Since I posted it this morning, I’ve already added three new posts. 🙂
      But I’ll leave it at that and will do a recap end of the week.
      There are some interesting lists and reviews available already.
