In this case, we recommend taking a more difficult book, opening it in the middle and trying to read. If you get stuck at 3-10 new words per page, feel free to read. You can try and read children's books, for example, by Roald Dahl. His story can be safely read even by an adult: the original humour of the author will not leave you cold.
