NEU auf zehnseiten.de

Buecher finden ! Zehnseiten.de - Die Autorenlesung im Internet.Für alle, die sich lieber ohne Umweg über die Meinung anderer vom Text selbst überzeugen lassen, dürfte die nächste Seite besonders interessant sein. Die Videos auf www.zehnseiten.de zeigen Autoren, beim Vorlesen von zehn Seiten aus ihrem aktuellen Buch – in schwarz-weiß und immer in derselben Kameraeinstellung. Es müssen nicht unbedingt die ersten zehn Seiten eines neuen Romans sein, die Autoren suchen sich die Textstellen selbst aus. Die Videos sind ca. 15 Minuten lang und konzentrieren sich auf das Wesentliche: Die Schriftsteller und deren Werk. Meistens gibt es nicht einmal eine Einleitung zum Hintergrund des Buches.
