How do I pronounce "Bücher" correctly? Help
I've heard about the trick to say an "i/ee" and then pout your lips. (Someone did this on a youtube video)

Is "die Bücher" nominative or accusative in this sentence?
In this sentence accusative.
I said we are reading books and it said im wrong cause i didn't put "the" before "books"
Yes, of course.
Wir lesen die Bücher. = We read/are reading the books.
Wir lesen Bücher. = We read/are reading books.
why is it "we read the books," and not "we read the book?"
It's because "die Bücher" is plural (singular: das Buch).
but das is used for feminine?
No. "Buch" is neuter. The articles are:
das Buch (accusative sing.)
die Bücher (nominative plural)
Bücher is book(s) why
Bücher can be:
Or what was the question?
I put "we have read the books" it wanted "we read the books". I fail to see the difference.
Different tenses. What you wrote is past, what Duo wants is present tense.
Why is it die bücher and not das bücher even though bücher is a neuter word?
"Bücher" is plural and "die" is the definite article for ALL plural words even though their singular counterparts have "der" or "das".
Singular form is "das Buch".
ä, ö and ü are called "Umlaut"
Is the "ch" in "Bücher" pronounced as a "y" or am I mishearing it.
