Tomorrow is St. Nicolas Day so all German Children will clean their boots tonight and put them in front of their doors. During the night comes than a Santa like character "Der Nikolaus" together with is fellow "Knecht Rubrecht". If you were a good child all year you get sweets in your boot. If not than you get a birch from Rubrecht. This year, maybe, all children are save, I would spare them the spanking and donate all birches to GR. ;-)
So, here we go again, new books:
Ringsgwandle - "Das Leben und Schlimmers": Bavarian, musician and "Kabarettist" which means politic comedian in German. This book goes to a colleague of mine, who has a big brain and a sharp tongue. I think he will enjoy it.
Dieter Moor - "Was wir nicht haben brauchen Sie auch nicht": Written by an intellectual TV moderator, this might be an intelligent and funny book. I hope so, because it goes to my boss, and he has some standards... and he is from East Westphalia, so he needs some humor.
Tracy Chevalier - "The Lady and the Unicorn": This is the book of the day for me. I already own it in a German translation, haven't read it yet. I will switch them and maybe donate the German one to an open bookshelf in town.
This results in 35 books from Charity against 95 Books from Amazon.
