"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week, we get a Freebie which means we don't even have to twist the topic to fit for us, we can choose it ourselves.
I read recently, that 10 % of all books are published in German. Does that mean that every read has read 10 % books by German writers? Probably not. But, if you would like to read something from Germany (or Austria or Switzerland), maybe one of my favourites would suit you.
