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.

Great idea Caroline – I’ll be sure to keep an eye on this page regularly. And tomorrow I’ll have my next post up, a play this time 🙂
Yes, I thought it would come in handy. I would have liked to read a play as well but I had to start on the novels or I will never finish anything.
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!
That sounds great. I’m looking forward to the review. Yes, there are a few people from last year and quite a lot of new ones.
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! 🙂
You’re welcome. There will be many more as so many have signed up. Some lists are very interesting. But dangerous as well as they make the TBR pile grow. 🙂
Thanks for the list. i look forward to discovering some new books as well as bloggers!
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.

Thanks for the update. The number of posts and participants is impressive. Congratulations! It’s a great event.
I wish I had more time to participate.
Thanks, Emma, yes, I’m very surprised as well and meanwhile there are far over ten more in my reader. 🙂
Such a great event, and thank you for the list. It’s always nice to discover new book blogs and a big event like this is the perfect way to do it.
I agree. Every time I üarticipate or organize an event I discover new blogs too.
seems like the event is a big success 🙂
I am happy for you.
I am still in between, whether to join or not. I haven’t check your movie blog again, have you made this kind of post too for German movies?
I’m watching only GErman movies but I’m on my own. 🙂
I thought you are going to do the same as book 😉
I am ready to share my napola review some time this month
I hope you liked it.
No, it’s not the same, that would be just too much to handle.
