Rules: Read 6 to 12 books by a German author (I define “German” here as someone from a German-speaking country)
Timeframe: 1st January – 31st December 2009
My goal: 6 books
Many thanks to Marnyfor hosting this challenge. I have been amazed by the number of great books there are that were originally written in German. I had no idea.
These were the books I read for the challenge. I really wanted to get to The Dark Side of Love by Rafik Schami. I first saw this over at The Armenian Odar Reads. It’s set in Syria and I thought it sounded fascinating. It’s long though and I didn’t quite get there. I’m going to carry it over into next year’s plans.
