I have to admit that I never knew very much about RL Stine, even though his books seem to be everywhere in the US. He is primarily famous as a writer for young people, having written many series of novels for a teenage audience. His most famous novels are thrillers, though he has also written science fiction, fantasy, and romance. He has been called "the Stephen King of children's literature," and the comparison is easy to see. If someone is immensely successful writing hundreds of books of suspense, who else would they be compared to?
     I've chosen to feature RL Stine for a different reason, however. One of the things that has always set the Confederate Bookstore apart from other bookstores in Ecuador is our extensive selection of literature in English. Most Ecuadorians, though, no matter how much they want to learn English, aren't ready to read James Joyce or Isaac Asimov.
     As we begin our time in Confederate books, we're working hard to expand our selection to include good books suitable for non-native English speakers of varying levels of proficiency. RL Stine seems like a good first choice in this category. His lively books use mostly intermediate level vocabulary, and tell stories that will appeal to teens, young adults, and even older readers. (Though most of the characters are teens.) I've been book shopping this week, and read a couple of books from Stine's famous Goosebumps series. They're easy to read, and for a native, manageably short for a single stint in a coffee shop. I wanted to get to the end, though; these are real thrillers, not easy readers or silly textbooks. 

There are more than a hundred titles by RL Stine currently on the shelves in Confederate books, and even more will be arriving soon. If you don't find them, just ask!
