I love a good romance and I recently discovered a fun romance series written for adult learners. It led me to explore the world of books for adults learning to read.
Are you looking for books for teens or adults who need simpler texts? If you search the catalog using the phrase “readers for new literates,” you’ll get a long list of books at different reading levels. If you’re looking for levels, choose a title. For instance, when I clicked on the title Water for Life, I looked for “Series that include this title” and then I could link to all the books in the Penguin active reading series or just the Penguin active reading level 2.
You can find versions of English and American classics or modern fiction. You can find biographies, true crime, and a book written in both Somali and English. We have horror stories as well as romance.
Back to that romance series. All of the books in the series feature photographs which add a lot of meaning to the stories about long time love and new love. My personal favorite is The Big Goof: Jan loves Bill. Will Bill love Jan? It makes me laugh every time I read it. Everyone I’ve shared it with has noticed different things in the photos which deepened the story.
If you’d like a customized list of books, you can ask us at My Librarian. We’re happy to help you find good reading. Here’s a list I made that features books and poetry for a romance fan. Let’s champion reading together! Thanks.
