German Literature Month - November

After seeing this on Vishy's blog, I immediately decided to take part in it; I hardly have anything to do this November and it is about time I caught up on some German Literature.

German Literature Month is hosted by Caroline @ Beauty is a Sleeping Cat and Lizzy @ Lissy's Literary Life.

The weekly schedule for the month is -

Week 1 - German Literature

Week 2 - German Crime Fiction

Week 3 - Austria and Switzerland

Week 4 - Kleist and Other German Classics

Week 5 - Wrap up

I haven't found the time to make a complete list of the things I would like to read. In fact, that's good, because every time I make a reading list, I end up reading something entirely else. But there are certain German books, which I always wanted to read - these include Patrick Süskind's Perfume, Max Frisch's Mein Name sei Gantenbein, Michael Ende's The Neverending Story, and Kafka's the Trial. Along with that, some Bertolt Brecht, some Günter Grass, Ingrid Noll and something (anything) by Goethe.

Of course, I couldn't even dream of finishing half this stuff. But you can call it my tentative list. Let's just see how much I actually read. I'm definitely looking forward to November!

Glad to have you on board, Priya.

I know exactly what you mean about changing your mind having made a reading list. I'm still deciding what I'm going to be reading.
