By this time of the year, I've decided to dedicate some of my time getting in the mood for Christmas, so I bought this book on short stories, The Ecco Book of Christmas Stories, and have been reading it, almost hearing Jingle-Bells... Lovely stories; highly recommended!
This week I've been to Bastian Sick's lecture held at Goethe Institut São Paulo. Sick is the author of "Der Dativ ist dem Genitiv sein Tod", a book on common mistakes people make while writing or speaking German.
He's a showman; the whole lecture was filled with sharp remarks, such as the common doubt on whether it should be "die" or "das" Nutella... really funny! By the way, don't miss his blog, Zwiebelfisch.
