    Reading is it good for a beginner

    Dear Teachers.

    I am not an English native speaker. And I want to improve my vocabulary and don't think so much time to say this word or that word.

    A friend of mine told me that I should read small books or novel as an advice.

    My English is not bad . In writing I can almost make a simple sentence but not very well and attractive sentence. But in speaking with the others (in English) is very hard to me. I become pressured and I can't find the words easily. I take much time and may that change the sentence meanings if I don't answer quickly .

    So If it's right. Can you give me small English books or novels to start?

    Thank you very much.

    Maybe these:
    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
    Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
    Tom Sawyer Abroad
    Tom Sawyer, Detective

    The first one is my favourite of all times.

    Mind you, it is probably a good idea to start with some smaller texts, like short stories, before going for complete novels.
