Following the German lit Month hosted by Caroline and Lizzy this November which to all involved seemed a great success and then the announcement by TJ of his twelve Germans, I decided to post my own German reading plan for 2016 and if any of you wish to read along either, any of the books or anything else by these authors, let me know.

Heinrich Steinfest, Die Feine nase der Lilli Steinbeck (Le Onzième Pion ) to be read in French 25/12/2015

look forward to your thoughts on these books.
You reminded me that I have Grenzfall on my stack. I’ll be curious to hear how you like Schwarzweissroman. Have fun reading.
Wonderful project. I started Das Mädchen when it came out and really liked it but had to put it aside for some reasosn. Maybe I’ll join you with that.
Great 2 hear
