What I Read in 2014

Home & Garden, Learn German

what i read in 2014

After last year when I read a measly two books, I knew I had to do better this year. Taking on one of those 50 books in a year challenges certainly isn’t for me. But for 2014 I had a specific strategy: take a bit of a break from German books. I read several English language books — including a couple by I’ll-read-anything-he-writes Irvine Welsh and one by my one-time English teacher John Dixon — that I really enjoyed. Then it was right back to the German practice. Admittedly I haven’t quite finished Christian Kracht’s 1979 — I’ve got about a quarter of the book left — but as long as it’s read before the ball drop on New Year’s Eve it counts, right?

  1. Sieben Jahre in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer [my review]
  2. Reheated Cabbage by Irvine Welsh
  3. Phoenix Island by John Dixon
  4. Skagboys by Irvine Welsh
  5. Mandels Büro by Berni Mayer [my review]
  6. Deutsches Theater by Benjamin von Stuckrad-Barre [my review]
  7. 1979 by Christian Kracht [reread]

That’s what I read this year!
