It's summer and the semester is almost over. That calls for hours and hours of lying in the garden with a good book. Well, as soon as the weather gets better again. If it doesn't then it calls for hours of lying on the sofa with a cup of tea and a good book. Either way, there's one problem: I've pretty much run out of reading material which is to say of books that I can't wait to read.
A trip to the bookshop yesterday taught me that a) the English section of German bookshops is way too small and b) there are too many books that could be good but that could just as well suck.
So I'm asking you: Are there any books you can recommend? Any must-reads? Books you read recently and enjoyed immensely? Books that you can read over and over again?
I'm open for almost everything that's either fiction or non-fiction with a lot of British humour (like An Utterly Impartial History of Britain
). Preferably by British of Irish authors.
