  1. Would you be able to recommend any German sites that have short stories to readonline/download? So as to better develop an understanding and practice of German grammar? Not necessarily parallel text stories but simply enough for the intermediate reader who is just starting to get the hang of everything fitting together

    1. Ich werde schauen.

      Hello, have you tried watching movies with German subtitles? That works great and improves your ability to understand the German speech and helps you remember commonly used phrases in German. But this can be quite difficult if your vocabulary in German is not yet enriched. One other thing that works perfect for me is this site: http://www.deutschakademie.de/online-deutschkurs/audio-course/ It has a free Audio trainer, where you can choose a lesson according to your level. The stories are parallel text stories and they have a good range of vocabulary and grammar. So this can be pretty much useful for you. However, if you want to download it and have it as an mp3 file it costs round 10euro. But you can always use it online for free.

  2. Here are some general resources, i.e. not restricted to short stories.

    The MobileRead forum has an extensive selection of free downloadable ebooks in a variety of formats: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Free_eBooks-de/de … with free conversion to other ebook formats via the Calibre app.

    The US-based Project Gutenberg has a selection in German, usually in several formats. One starting point: http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Category:DE_Bücherregal (which may or may not be a complete list; not sure).

    There’s a group in Germany that uses the Project Gutenberg name, though does not make the books freely available despite the probable public domain status. May still be fine for reading. http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/

    The Internet Archive has scans of public domain books (usually published before 1923). http://archive.org/search.php?query=german%20reader Unfortunately most of the German stories are typeset in Fraktur, so a bit of an “adventure” to read. But, a few are in modern fonts. I haven’t checked the readers per se, just other German books.
