Novels in English: the best literature for learning the language

For your reading pleasure on cold winter afternoons, in front of a fire, lying comfortably on a couch, or in your room, also in the summer under an umbrella, I suggest reading some English; there are many best sellers of today and yesterday that can enrich your vocabulary and English skills.   One of the best time tested methods of learning English is simply to read the books in their native language. And don’t forget that this can also open you to new worlds: many English titles have never been translated into Italian, therefore you may become passionate about reading this type of literature and discover new stories and enjoyable authors to appreciate.
