Do people post books in foreign languages on here?  Not about foreign language but novels in foreign language? I'm looking for novels in German, trying to stay fresh thanks!

Yes.  There are some posted.  There is even a genre forum.

You can search authors then look at all books they have both available and not available.....often I see other languages  when I do that...I don't know what languages but I see them ...some will say  but some just have the titles in that language

If you go to Discussion Forums, Genre Foreign Language you will find quite a few postings.

I myself have quite a few german books and novels and one of my buddies is another German who swaps here.

You may want to check out my bookshelf.

Amanda, use the Advanced Search feature, use "German" or "German Language" as a keyword--and make sure to choose fiction or literature as your genre so you avoid all the German language books.  You should find several that way.
