So this past Christmas I was in San Francisco at the Green Apple Bookstore (a great place for book lovers) and found a book by author Simon Winder called Germania (published 2010) that is a great read for those interested in what is German over the last 1,500 yrs. Though I have studied European history and read alot over the years Germany is still a mystery to me even though I visited Bavaria in 1990. So much to learn about this country of my ancestors.
