The objectives of the readme.cc project
Readme.cc is a cultural project which was initiated by the association p&s melk. Project partners can be found on the 'About US' page.
The aim of readme.cc is to create a literary platform which regularly provides new tips for books which people can read to understand and acquaint themselves with new books and new opinions about books.
Readme.cc invites participants to photograph themselves with books, to create personal bookshelves and compare notes with other participants. Readme.cc collects books which readers think will also be good reads in the future, irrespective of whether they are fiction or non-fiction. Within the scope of this agreement, participants of readme.cc can contribute text, photo, video* and audio* files which can then be viewed by all other participants.
Participation in readme.cc is free of charge.
(*Technically, it is not yet possible to upload video and audio files onto readme.cc)
