New Books in German: Readers
Thank for your interest in reading for New Books in German. Please fill in the form below to help us in assigning books that are a good match to your knowledge and interests.
The reports you write are a useful resource to help the jury chose which books we feature on our website. We have a template for reports which must be followed.
In filing the form out, you declare your ability to read a book in German and make a recommendation as to whether it is a good example of its genre and whether it is ripe for translation into English.
We have many more readers than books and so you are not guaranteed to be sent a book to read each time.
Please contact Sarah Hemens with any queries. My email is on our website.
