Basic reading practice

Post by gyuunyuu luvr » Wed 10.24.2007 10:07 pm

Is there a site where I can practice basic reading? Like JLPT 4 levelish. All the reading material I find is way over my head. Does any one know of a site. どうもありがとございます  :D

The only "reading textbooks" I know assume a lot of grammatical knowledge and vocab before you start.

Although it has lots of kanji, once you select a piece to read, EG

The kanji is clickable, and it's readings come up. Also, there are many sites (Although I know none by name) Which will put furigana over the kanji for you.
1 star is easiest, and 5 stars is hardest.
