I have had a lot of fun participating in the event: have discovered some wonderful authors and books and have read some great posts on German texts.
Here are the books that I have read for the event in the previous editions:
Amerika by Franz Kafka
The Land of Green Plums by Herta Muller
The Murder Farm by Andrea Maria Schenkel
The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
Visitation by Jenny Erpenbeck
This year I plan to read (amongst others) In Matto’s Realm by Freiedrich Glauser; Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig; and finish Lenz by Peter Schneider. I’d also love to read a text by a female author as this time Caroline and Lizzy are focussing on German women writers (though going by the books read, I have, in fact, read more female authors than male).
Details of the event can be found over here:

Thanks for the links and for participating, neer.There are a lot of great women authors but they don't seem to get enough attention. I hope this year will make people discover some new authors.
Neeru – You've chosen some interesting books! I'll be very much looking forward to your reviews.
Sounds great Neer – been too long since I read a German book (in fact, not sure I've ready any this year – yikes!)
Thanks to you Caroline (and to Lizzie) for making this one of the most anticipated events.
Thanks a lot Margot. That's a big boost.
Thanks Sergio. Why don't you participate too? It'd be fun.
