Just when I think it can’t get any better than GLM III, you accomplish this! What an a-maz-ing month!
Highlights and quality right from the off (and that was just the reading plans). We had new and very enthusiastic recruits (if I may call you that), and it would appear that #germanlitmonth has inspired a number of new blogs. Welcome to the blogosphere all. We were also joined by our youngest ever participant, aged 7. Well done, Emily. I loved your review so much, I’m going to read the book myself. (At 56, I’m not too old, am I?)
On a personal note, I’m quite pleased with the way my month panned out. I didn’t quite stick to my published plan. I substituted Rilke for Roth because my book went missing. I’ve been shuffling book piles around recently and Roth has been misplaced. He will turn up soon because I have to sort out the messie library. The book piles are out of control and keep falling over …
In total 43 bloggers participated. Whether it was for one title only, or for twenty, each and every contribution is truly appreciated. Thank you, one and all! The final review count is not yet known. As the last hours of GLM IV tick away, reviews continue to appear on the linky. I still have another 5 titles to review … The linky will stay open, so feel free to add any reviews of books you read in November but didn’t have time to write.
Caroline and I now have work to do. I have to figure out the winner of the pick and mix, and Caroline has to determine her favourite post. So, while you’re waiting for the results, please head off to Mel’s post event party at the Grand Budapest Hotel. Don’t forget to take and name your plus one, and, please pace yourself. This party lasts 7 days, and will culminate in publication of the now traditional GLM author index and the prize-giving ceremony on Sunday 7.12.2014.
