Have you assimilated yet?
Gone native? Become German? At Germany, Ja, they say they’ll tell you. Right here. I’m not entirely sure I would fill the list with the same items though, if I had written it. Except for number 13: “You don’t have a flat sheet on your bed anymore, just a duvet and cover.” Yup, I’m thoroughly Germanized in that respect.

Another day at the Frankfurt Book Fair, another slew of bright and beautiful images. But books weren’t the only highlights; new technology that combines reading on the page with tablet and computer add-ons, e-books, print-on-demand were just a few of the things on display that are pointing to the potential new tech will bring to reading in the future.
“Book publishers are expanding the scope of their opportunities to the maximum. They are experimenting with content and technologies, and that spirit of invention pervades the Book Fair,” said Juergen Boos, Director of the Frankfurt Book Fair.
