A Joint Reading Adventure

Lectory's Mission

Reading has always provoked reactions. Since there are books, there are marginal notes. Because responding to a text directly – "answering" it – is a natural reaction of every reader.

"Social Reading" transforms this internal dialogue now in an online discussion on and about the text, in which a comment of one reader is taken up by another and leads to an exciting dialogue.

The results:
