Welcome to German Literature Month IX 2019

Welcome all! It’s that glorious time of the year again – a full month of Germanic literary indulgence! This is just a quick admin post as there may be newcomers who wonder how this event works.

1. Read anything you want in any language you want … as long as the material was originally written in German.

2. You can follow the themed reading schedule, or ignore it completely by reading as you please for the entire month.

3. If you’re joining in the Berlin Alexanderplatz readalong, please leave an email address to receive the readalong discussion questions.

4. Share what you are reading and what you felt about it by using the tag #germanlitmonth on your blog posts, tweets, instagram shots or booktube videos.

5. Please add a link to each review on the linky at www.germanlitmonth.blogspot.com. (This is an invaluable help when pulling together the author index at the end of the event. Check out the indices from previous years if you’re looking for something to read.)

6. Have fun!

  1. This will be my third time reading Alexanderplatz, the first time in the Michael Hoffman translation. I like the Manhattan Transfer linking!

  2. Thanks for hosting again, Caroline! Unfortunately, my schedule won’t allow me to join the readalong this year, but I do plan to post a review during the month, and look forward to reading others’ posts.

  4. Many thanks for co-hosting this event again. I have a sense of how much effort and organisation these things can take and it’s no mean undertaking. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be joining this year due to other commitments, but I wish you and Lizzy every success with the event.

    Berlin Alexanderplatz sounds wild – I’ll be very interested to hear how you’re getting on with it!

  5. My favourite reading event of the year is back! Whoohoo! I can’t wait to get started! Looking forward to the Berlin Alexanderplatz readalong! Thanks so much for hosting GLM with Lizzy, Caroline! I can’t wait to get started on my first book!
