We are very lucky here in Edmonton because the library sells many of their used books, several times a year, in a massive sale. All books cost only $1-2 each, and they have books of every variety available, including cookbooks, kids’ books, and science and nature books. I always take my class to the sale, since you’ll never have another opportunity to buy such high-quality books so inexpensively! Reading for pleasure is an excellent way to improve all of your language skills, especially vocabulary and grammar. When you own the book, you can write in it, and make notes about what you read, allowing you to read quickly for the main idea, and then go back to read more deeply for understanding.
