Best of the Reader

A series of e-books for ESL learners

""Best of The Reader", is a series of e-books for adult literacy and English as a second language learners. This site has 13 e-books, a teachers' guide, and a 2011 calendar of special days and holidays.
Each of the e-books has six to eight stories, and each story has exercises and activities to go with it. There is also an answer key in each e-book. Most of the stories, recipes, puzzles, and other material are from past issues of The Westcoast Reader (1982-2009), a newspaper for adults who are improving their English reading skills."

You have permission to download, print, and distribute all the material on this site. To view and print the e-books, you may need to download and install the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
