Planning and Reading Now--November is German Literary Month. Come on Board!

One of my big challenges for this first weekend of October has been to prepare for German Literature Month in November, hosted by Caroline and Lizzy. Please visit their blogs! You'll find the links in my "Blogs of Substance" list.



Yesterday in the late afternoon I was desperate to begin reading a mystery or thriller by a German novelist. I discovered Wolf Haas and downloaded Brenner and God, a mystery novel, onto my Nook.

Pure enjoyment! Original, imaginative, super-funny, and a book I was needing, though I didn't know it. It's relatively short as well. A superb! beginning to all the German novels I hope to read in the coming weeks.

  1. My library has this book, so I'm in luck. Also, I am trying to persuade a friend who reads German to read it in the original language.

    1. Kathy,
      I'll be very interested in finding out what you think about the novel. I'm more than halfway through now. It's a short novel and a quick read.

  2. The book by Wolf Haas sounds very interesting. I want to read some mysteries by German authors and had not heard of him. Thanks for alerting me.

    1. Tracy,
      I hope you find it absurdly amusing, as I did. Quite a farce, which was refreshing!
