Welcome to Best of The Reader, a series of e-books for adult literacy and English as an additional language learners. This site has 14 e-books, a teachers’ guide, and a calendar of special days and holidays for 2016.

Each e-book has 8 to 10 stories, and each story has exercises and activities to go with it. There is also an answer key in each e-book. The stories, recipes, puzzles, and other material are from past issues of The Westcoast Reader (1982-2009), a newspaper for adults who are improving their English reading skills.

You have permission to download, print, and distribute all the material on this site. To view and print the e-books, you may need to download and install the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
