I should have already posted this. Caroline and Lizzy are hosting German Literature Month. Since I'm relatively new to book blogging I missed last year's event. This initiative is most welcome since I'm very ignorant of most literature in the German literature, save a smattering of Franz Kafka, Goethe and Günter Grass. And Heinrich Böll; I keep forgetting once, many years ago, I read the excellent novel The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum.
I figured this would be a good opportunity to clear out some books from my growing list and an incentive to read some books I keep postponing. So I've ordered Hermann Broch's The Sleepwalkers and Elfriede Jelinek's Wonderful, Wonderful Times. These two have been on my mind for years now, and I finally have solid motives to read them.
