German Free Reading Materials Available at the LRC
Last updated: July 22, 2006 (a few edits made 8/2012)

Note: the recommended levels are very rough estimates. If you are interested in a book that has been rated above your level, try it anyway: your interest in the topic might help you overcome the linguistic difficulties. Conversely, if you are interested in a book that is rated below your level, check it out anyway: you can read it quickly and then move on to something else. Finally, some of the estimates (especially for the non-fiction books) are based on the assumption that you will just skim the texts for interesting information, picking out texts you can understand, rather than trying to read the book cover-to-cover.
