Breakfast for Nobel laureates, Harry Potter under house arrest – and what drink will be a metaphor for Daniel?

Breakfast like a Nobel laureate: Even if Daniel had more coffee, this time he was well fortified for the bestseller challenge. And the vote is clear: both thumbs up for the short stories “Kummer aller Kind” by Mariana Leky. There is also a reunion with old acquaintances: Jan has the new book by Katerina Poladjan with him and Daniel is happy about the second novel by Sebastian Stuertz – the one with the “Iron Heart of Charlie Berg”: A mixture of Houellebecq imitation and children’s book, the perfect reading material to convince Jan and Katharina. And also the color – the most beautiful ERS orange – inspires the hosts.

Our guest Michael, aka e_librarian, reveals how one manages to go from being a non-reader to over 130 books a year: In an interview with both hosts. And then, to Jan’s delight, the Nobel Prize winners’ hour strikes again: In the All Time Favorites, he and Daniel Heinrich Böll examine “Views of a Clown” for its suitability for today’s readers.
