Heidita made this observation

Why don't you try use some easy texts to start with? Have you tried graded reading?

My questions are:

Where can I find more information on this approach. It sounds like something I could do on a day to day basis to some good personal advantage and personal reward?

Is there a web site or a reference source here on SpanishDict.com or any other place where I could get a list of books, magazines or newspapers that would lend themselves to graded reading?

It is an interesting idea and like a child, I just want to ask, "Can you tell me more'" I really dont even know what would be good questions to ask here so please direct me to as much information as possible.

Thanks for any help.

HI Moe, I was not sure I could actually find something on the web, as i was thinking about real books, but i did find graded reading here. this seems to be a very good place, three grades:

Thanks so much, Heidita, for posting this website! I am currently reading a book in the "storyteller's series" (Ladrón de la Mente) --a series of graded reading for students of spanish. Moe, I think you could find these on Amazon. Also, in my city, there is a newstand that carries popular magazines in Spanish (National Geographic, Prevention, and the OAS journal). I find it very helpful to read the magazines since the article and advertisements are in everyday Spanish.
