Home Page For German Literature Eight - Links to Reviews and Much More
German Literature Month is one of my favorite international
.book blog events. Lizzy and Caroline have been marvelously running it for eight years. This will be my seventh year as a participant. Through the reviews over the years I have discovered writers now very dear to me. It is a good way to meet other book bloggers and to attract quality readers to your blog.
