EDIT: ReadLang link fixed below. ^_^

The Childrens digital library has free books in Spanish. Just Google them.

My highest recommendation though is to get ReadLang. It helps you read words and phrases by clicking on one word or highlighting and clicking on a group of them. It also creates flashcards and does some other cool stuff. I just use it for the word and phrase tips though.

Also, this isn't a book but it's helpful and entertaining to me. My native language is English so I like to watch things in English but read the Spanish subtitled. Today I'm watching TedTalks with my roommate while reading the Spanish subtitles. There is also this anime called RWBY. I created a post for it a week or so back HERE (Ignore the comment it anchors to, that person is talking about a different show. Just scroll up to the main post.)

Good luck with your studies! :D

Thanks a lot for the reply :) I'm going to have a look at the library. The ReadLang link doesn't work, you know why? Also good luck to you!!

I second ReadLang! I was gonna think you would recommend "El león, la bruja y el ropero" for some kind of obvious reasons. ;) Haha

I considered it, but it's a bit advanced for a level 7 and the book club seems to have stopped. :(

The little Prince is a perfect book to start. I am going to leave the links with the book in Spanish and in English. I a have the link to the audiobook too ... If you don't have an accontant at 4shared, just sign up with only an e-mail, always go to dowload, and than "free dowload" and wait 20 seconds.

audiobook - http://www.4shared.com/mp3/xvDIB6_Cce/audio_libro_-_el_principito.html

book in English - http://www.4shared.com/office/5toUSkeHce/The_Little_Prince.html

book in Spanish -http://www.4shared.com/office/dlCm_T7vba/El_principito.html
