Stories? OK. But what kinds of stories are you fond of? adventurous? detective? romantic? or horror?
Really I haven't been updated about some recent stories. I only know stories which were written long ago. Ah, why don't you try Dracula by Bram Stocker? I love it. It may give you some interesting time at summer nights. :mrgreen:

I'm afraid summer has already gone, but you could try to read "Tess" one day... it's quite nice, and it's neither difficult nor easy to read, so it's just perfect to be read.

Tess of the d'Urbervilles, by Thomas Hardy.

He, he, he... I've just found in google someone who says that is the worst book he/she has ever read... :?

Actually, I can't tell you exactly which books are easy to read. For the same story, there may be different version. You may go to the library or book shops to look for books that suit your needs. Hope you can find what you need soon. :lol: :lol:
