I listed 2 paperbacks and 4 hardbacks today that are all in the german language (so naturally did not have ISBNs).  I tried to get a variety of genre and type, but since my german is less than pathetic I'm not sure how I did, even in categorizing them!  One is definitely humor (satire), one appears to be a critique of the United States, two are novels involving horses (probably aimed at preteens), and 2 are older adult novels.  One adult novel has a description in english, one I was unable to find a description in any language, and the others all have "back cover" information written in german.  Here is an alphabetical list of titles to make them easier to find on my shelf, if you are interested!

Die ganze Welt ist Zirkus (by Ephraim Kishon)

Die Mutter (by Pearl S. Buck)

Donner und Doria (by Lise Gast)

Gebrauchsanweisung fuer Amerika (by Paul Watzlawick)

Reiterhof Dreililien (by Ursula Isbel)

Unter den Dolomiten (by Konrad Telmann)
