The Tadoku (多読) guide page is designed for students learning Japanese:
http://guides.library.ubc.ca/japanese/tadoku/homu

At the Asian Library’s Language Learning section, students will be able to find print versions of the graded readers as well as picture books. We also offer e-books that can be found at: http://guides.library.ubc.ca/japanese/tadoku/ebooks

The recently upgraded Tadoku page has separate sections for the Graded Tadoku Readers (Nihongo yomuyomu bunko) and the Taishūkan Japanese Readers (Nihongo tadoku bukkusu), as well as a guide on “which reader is the right one for you,” based on the corresponding Japanese courses offered.

Please contact the Japanese language librarian Naoko Kato at naoko.kato@ubc.ca if you have any comments or questions.
