Amazing Stories (2013)

This e-book is part of a series called Best of the Reader, which consists of stories from The Westcoast Reader, a newspaper for adults trying to improve their English reading skills.

Each story is accompanied by exercises to help learners improve both their reading skills and their grasp of English. The material can be used by a learner on his own or by a teacher in a classroom.

This book contains true stories about people facing unusual circumstances, including one about a man who lost nine fingers to frostbite while mountain-climbing but still returned to his job as a firefighter.

The author has devised a rating system for the reading level of stories in the series, with an icon showing either one, two or three books. Most of the e-books include a variety of reading levels, but the stories in this book are all rated at Level 3, the highest level.

Books in the Best of the Reader series are published on Creative Commons, a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available to share legally. To learn more about Best of The Reader, please click here:
