Hello from Munich!

Having read about the project in Wired News I immediately decided to join in. I love reading out to others, especially kids, and even took a few lessons in (how'd you call it? speech training?) years ago.
I'd like to promote the German Romantics, like Eichendorff (Aus dem Leben eines Taugenichts). ... Anyway I'll start out by putting them on the wish list. ...
One of my favorites is also Tucholsky. So, if the project becomes feasible, see if I can join in. (But I understand all of this will have to be discussed in another thread.)
About me: I graduated in Oriental Studies, Political Science and Teaching German as A Foreign Language (DaF). But that's all history, I've worked as a dictionary editor and project manager for electronic dictionaries for many years now.

Welcome, Alice!

I hope you'll claim a chapter of one of our current projects whenever you're ready. (there's still time for you to read our Weekly Poem ( ) :)

Let us know if you have any questions, and happy reading!

Well well, soon all of Munich will be lurking in this forum!! Welcome, Alice! I love Tucholsky, too, and wish I could read some... I'm sure we'll find a way of doing it via LibriVox soon.

In the meantime, please read something else! There are lots of really nice English projects, and/or we'd be very happy if you joined our German readings - we have Winnetou I going, and in a moment I'm going to start Grimms Maerchen over at Readers Wanted.

Any questions, please ask! :)
