  1. Thanks for the list Caroline – So many interesting looking blogs and books to check out! Still hoping to join in late in the month.

      • OK, since time is ticking away I will go with something short and at least for me safe. I am starting Hermann Hesse’s “Demian” tonight. Hesse is perhaps my favorite author and I have read many of his works but not this one. I should have commentary up for the last week of the month!

        • I love Hesse. Demian is part of a trilogy but you can read them as standalones. One of the two others, Steppenwolf, is set where I’m living. He might even have written it here. In the movie version you see the town.

          • I id not realize that Demian and Steppenwolf are related. I have read Steppenwolf and I am amazed by that work. I have also seen the movie but it has been awhile.

  2. This is so awesome, Caroline! German Literature Month rocks! I am still catching up on the posts of other participants and the sheer size of my ‘TBR’ list now is amazing and so exciting!

  3. That’s an impressive list of participants. I think I’ll go visit some of the blogs.
    I never really made a reading plan based on author’s origins, in fact the only German name that comes to mind right now is Goethe with his very sad and emotional The Sorrows of Young Werther. I really loved that book.

    • I didn’t expect it to be quite this successful this early on.
      Yes, Werther is a tragically beautiful book. Thinking of classics, I’m sure you would like E.T.A. Hoffmann.

  4. That’s quite an impressive list! It’s nice to see so many people joining in–I’ll have to check out those posts but will have to do so with pen and paper in hand as I am sure I’ll be adding titles to my reading list! Thanks so much for all the links!

  5. Wow, what a great event! November is really busy for me so I probably won’t be able to participate, but I’m enjoying visiting all these blogs and discovering some great books. Thanks to you and Lizzie for organising!!
