Looking Back on German Literature Month 2013


German Literature Month 2013 is over. It’s time to thank everyone for participating. Some have shown extraordinary enthusiasm. I’m not sure about the statistics of the last years but I’d say with 127 posts, this year was a success.

If you’d like to get an overview, visit our special German Litertaure Month page, which will guide you to all the contributions.

While the month ends on my blog, there is still something going to happen on Lizzy’s. A generous editor has provided a set of books for a lucky winner, who will be announced on Wednesday. Don’t miss visiting her blog then.

I was a bit afraid that there wouldn’t be as much interest this year but that was clearly not the case. Thanks again to all of you.

  1. This is a bit of an aside, but I’m reminded of it because of German Literature Month — I went to the movie premiere of The Book Thief this weekend. I thought it was well done. The actors and the script were wonderful. But I kept thinking that the book was probably so much better. There were obvious gaps in the plot where the filmmakers had to condense for the sake of time. Have you read The Book Thief? Would you recommend the book?

  2. Thanks a lot for hosting German Literature Month with Lizzy, Caroline. It is my favourite reading event of the year and I loved participating in it. I couldn’t read as much as planned but I discovered two of my favourite writers during GLM – Ingeborg Bachmann and Elke Schmitter – and so I am very happy. I am feeling sad that November is already over. How time flies! I can’t wait for GLM next year.

  3. 127 posts? WOW!! That’s indeed a successful event 🙂
    I wish I had been around but I dont even have time reading other blogs let alone a book.

    Congratulation, Caroline 🙂
