If you want to improve your English and are looking forward to doing it by reading some books, I would suggest you start with magazines. Magazines are simpler and much easier to understand and are absolutely apt for beginners. Magazines are easily available in any part of the world. You could start with any topic of your interest. Magazines are available on varied topics such as animals, automobiles, accessories, politics, current affairs, environment, botany and what not. You simply need to pick one of your choice. If you are a person of varied interests then I would suggest you read something like world magazine which covers a whole lot of issues. Different vicinities will have different issues and world magazine tries to cater to the issues of the entire world which makes it very popular among the masses.
This is one of the reasons w magazine is in English; it has an international audience to cater to. With the advent of the web and the internet, most of the magazines are available in e-versions and mobile format and can be easily downloaded from the internet at nominal prices. Although, the prices and the currency will vary from one place to another, there won’t be a huge difference in it. I not only get to read the top stories but also get to see the obituaries, statistics and other knowledgeable things. Hence, I am benefited from all sides.
