Tafelberg, 'n druknaam van NB-Uitgewers, stel 'n splinternuwe reeks digitale boeke met trots bekend:

Tafelberg Kort.

Tafelberg Kort boeke is vol vars insig en prikkelende analise van aktuele Suid-Afrikaanse kwessies, in maklik verteerbare dosisse, deur ons beste skrywers, spesiaal vir besige lesers.

Erika Oosthuysen, nonfiction publisher, said: "We are thrilled to launch Tafelberg Short books, a new series of incisive opinion pieces by top South African commentators and authors. It is a format which allows authors more depth and nuanced analysis than a newspaper article with its limited length. Yet it is quick, convenient and easy to read on an ereader or smartphone. The short ebook seems set to become the genre of choice for readers with little time but who need to stay informed. In the US, sales of short ebooks have passed the 2 million mark and the New York Times heralded ‘what feels like a new genre'."


The books can be purchased here or here.
