Spanish books

I am learning Spanish, and I thought it would be useful to read some Spanish books. Does anyone have any suggestions of some interesting, but easy to read Spanish books? Something you read in HS Spanish class would be good, and on the short side because it will take me forever. Thanks in advance!

What is it?

I can sort of read Spanish because it is so close to French - I'm reading a memoir now, but it has been 2 weeks and I'm only on page 50 or something. Super frustrating!

If you want to learn Spanish, the best thing to do would be to purchase Rosetta Stone. That software is amazing and it will cost you as much as a modern textbook would, but you will learn so much more out of the program.

This doesn't have a whole lot to do with Rivkah's question, but I'd be up for recommendations for good Spanish-language novels as well...I read quite a few in my undergrad classes and enjoyed most of them, plus I need a way to keep up my Spanish that doesn't involve a lot of wine and music school parties

Isabel Allende - Paula found here.

I read it in my Spanish Lit class and enjoyed it. Here's a summary of the book.

ETA: This one too...quick and easy read.

La Casa en Mango Street found here.

I'm taking classes so I think I will pass on Rosetta Stone, although I've heard it's good. I can read Spanish so I really am looking for books. (It was an embarrassing situation when I was reading "mi hijo precioso" on the metro and some dude came up to me and I had to say "no hablo espanol!") I'll check out the ones princess fashion mentioned though.

Spanish Books

Hi, I just get back. Happy new beginnings! By the way. I remember that I used to have Spanish subjects in College and I rarely can't speak fluently. Glad to see your post and you've shared some info about the best method to learn Spanish. It's another new learning for me!
