Well, I started with a series of books by the Penguin Books Publisher, such as the War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells, The Borrowers by Mary Norton or the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, some of these novels are adapted for beginners, And I also bought The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and Coraline by Neil Gaiman, but it was a bit difficult besides Dracula by Bram Stoker. For beginners is better some series called "level books"

Sometimes, (I'm old but I liked) I read comics because are a best first contact with the "real " english, slang, idioms..etc.

That's a good book to read, not only because it is greeeeat, but also because his writing is fairly simple and you can read it in any language you are learning. I am English and I read it in English, then Japanese and I am now reading it in Spanish!

Great, indeed...I would like to say I do my best, but I'm a bit off this month, because of some health issues...And well, I would rate my fluency in those languages as follows: English, 75%; Portuguese, 60%; and German, 10%....German it's quite a challenge...but I won't despair...
Thanks for asking.

Mi idioma nativo es Español/Castellano.
Gracias, ese es el plan. Si todo va bien el próximo año, tal vez me anime a iniciar otro idioma.
Bueno, para mí es todo por hoy.
Espero también le saque provecho a esta maravillosa plataforma.
Hasta luego...
