Your wish is granted!

For two reasons:

1) It has become a tradition that the unofficial end date is the day on which I publish the annual author index. This year that will be after Xmas as I will have only sporadic internet access during December.

More importantly

image2) The European Literature Network (ELN) is having a German December. Expect more German-language literature reviews, interviews and other such goodies over on their site. They’d also like #germanlitmonth readers to take part. So if you would like to record a 30-second video review of your favourite piece of German-language fiction, please do so.

The review can be based on the original German work or a translation, as long as you have a copy of the book to wave in front of the camera. It can be a novel, a short story collection, a volume of poetry or a play – as long as it’s fiction. Please include the title (ideally in English and in German), the author, what it’s about and why you love it.

Your video can be as straightforward or creative as you wish.  Try these two examples for size.

Let me know in comments by 25.11, if you’re likely to participate and I’ll send you details of how to send your finished video to ELN.
