Majdouline | 30 comments I would like to read 15 german translated books and one german non translated book.
I will list the book read each time I ll finish one, as I think it will be more efficient.
I checked the german translated books in my TBR and I have already 20.... I also ordered some more contemporan authors books such as Heimat ...
It will be great if I read everythibg I owe.But lets be realistic and aim for 16 :).
What a great challenge !!!!!

I've read Ostende and really liked it. And Träumer is on my tbr! One of his best books in my opinion: Lichtjahre (but I dont think it's available in English).

Majdouline | 30 comments Book #2: Brief einer unbekannten + Die Monscheingasse

I read this book in french, I am in love with Zweig since years and I ll take the opportunity of these challenge to read his translated books. I have almost every french translated books from him including his written biographies and essays on writers. I have read 2/ 3rd of his work, so this challenge is perfect to make it happen.

My next book would probably be one from Kafka.

That was fantastic, I hated the main character and the totalitarism and buraucraty shown in the book but loved the depth of the book.
