Does anyone have any good reading resources?

I'm sorry, I know this has probably been covered a lot, but i've found I have a lot of spare time sat at my computer but can't currently use sound or talk - only read and take notes.

Does anyone have any good resources I could use to fill in these gaps I have and use them to carry on learning?

You should check out http://readlang.com/ it's a site for exactly that purpose. There are some texts already there and you can add your own by uploading epub files (a common ebook format). Or use the browser extension to help you read websites.

When you click on a word you immediately get the translation and the word gets added to a list you can practice.

I couldn't get any of the German sites to redirect.
