I want to have a shortcode like this:

[readmore]Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit...[/readmore]

I found the correct way:

function readmore_link($defaults,$between_the_tags){
    ...

    $output = 'This is between the shortcode tags:';
    $output .= $between_the_tags;

    return $output;
}
add_shortcode('readmore', 'readmore_link');
