Other Bookish Banter:

  • I participated in German Literature Month during November, reading and reviewing two novels originally written in German, The Book of Words by Jenny Erpenbeck and The Trial by Franz Kafka
  • I officially launched the 2014 Aussie Author Challenge. This reading challenge is back for its fifth year, and due to popular demand a broader range of participation levels are on offer in 2014.. four in fact: JOEY, WALLABY, WALLAROO and KANGAROO. Sign up now!The objective of this challenge is to showcase the wonderful diversity of the work being produced by Australian authors. Each month during the challenge I will be spotlighting book reviews by challenge participants and offering a guest posting spot on Booklover Book Reviews to a challenge participant. Find out how you can get involved at the challenge homepage.

    It did fly by, though looking at the books you reviewed it seems longer which makes it better. I’m actually going through a bit of a slump right now which is an issue because I’d previously planned to make December a read-all-the-books month. I’ve not read any of Stephen Fry’s books but if they are at all akin to his TV work it should be an excellent book!

      Ah yes, we all have slumps Charlie… it’s a busy time of year too. Am sure your reading mojo will return before you know it.

      Yes, the Fry title is not one for the prudish, but I really enjoyed it – predictably clever and hilarious. I listened to the audio which he narrated.
