French Reading Tips
Reading in French is an excellent way to learn new vocabulary and get familiar with French syntax, while at the same time learning about some topic, be it politics, culture, or a favorite hobby. Here are some tips and activities to improve your French reading skills.

French English Bilingual Books - French English Dual Language Books
I don't like to read translations, because I believe that something is lost when literature is translated out of its original language. However, bilingual books are a great way to enjoy literature when your language skills aren't quite good enough to read the original. These books are French classics with the original French and English translation, so that you can compare as you read.

Set your computer to use French (PC)
If you use Windows, you can immerse yourself a bit more in French by telling your computer to display menus and dialog boxes in French.
