What are good Spanish books

Easy to understand books in Spanish?

  • Hello everybody,

    I started learning Spanish about 2-3 years ago (with interruptions in between). Since I am currently not doing a course anymore, I would like to read a book in Spanish so that I don't get completely out of it. There are easy books for beginners especially for different levels, but unfortunately I don't find them really interesting in terms of content. I would rate my language level at B1 if I would also trust myself to understand simple "normal" books (with a little lookup ).

    Do any of you have a tip for something that is reasonably easy to read (and preferably not too extensive)? Genre is of secondary importance for the time being and does not have to be in the original Spanish, a translation is also possible. Maybe there is one or the other here who was / is in the same situation?

    Thank you in advance!

  • I don't know if you read with a Kindle or a Kindle reading app.
    If so, here are some free ebooks in Spanish

    The invention of the printing press is the greatest event in world history (Victor Hugo).

  • Certainly the books by Carlos Ruiz Zafón would be something for you. His books are easy, entertaining and linguistically not overly demanding. So it is definitely legible for you.

    What would life be if we didn't have the courage to take risks?

    I only recently got a Kindle and am reading my first e-book with it. I think this is actually very useful for foreign languages ​​as you can look up words directly.

    That’s where it’s best; then you can download something to try out from the free books and try it out. And if it doesn't like it or doesn't work, it can be quickly deleted from the account.
    Another tip:
    A monolingual Spanish dictionary is preinstalled on the kindle (el Diccionario de la lengua española) or at least available for download in your cloud. The marked words are explained in Spanish.
    If you want to have the marked words translated into German, you have to get a corresponding dictionary and save it on your kindle as a dictionary for Spanish. Here is a selection of Spanish - German dictionaries
    And if you want to continue your Spanish studies, you can see whether the Natural Learning method would be something for you
