These two reader of Chinese are excellent little books. They are cheap but dont be fooled by the price, the quality of the books are top class. They are sturdy and well bound books with good fonts. The books will suit all learners of chinese of intermediate level. I had been looking for ages for books of this level but glad i came across these two gems. A must buy for all serious students of Chinese.

A book you can read again and again.

These are great texts for intermediate level readers (I have HSK IV and studying for HSKV).

It goes without saying that the texts are much more interesting than the standard schoolbook texts that barely go beyond "I love to spend my weekends studing in the library".

What is particularily great about these books is that it is written in both the pinyin and the characters, and it came with a plastic sheet thing that you can place over the pinyin so that you only see the characters. This makes it easy to translate the odd character here and there that you might not know how to read.

It also comes with a CD but I haven't listned to it yet.

Firstly, the book is very rich in material - it six stories, each recorded on a supplementary MP3. Then, it is the first book I've seen which has a special screen. With its help you can cover pinin, so you can chose to read characters only.

This series of books is really useful for reading and listening to Chinese. The stories in this book are fairly easy to follow, if you have a little bit of Chinese. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a vocabulary in the back, unlike the book 3.
