Preferably without "uglificating" your English in the process :-)))

Would you be so kind to explain this notion of "word uglification"?

It means that the word is pronounced with great distortions of the symbols. You can't imagine the final sounding of any word if you don't know the combinations of symbols and their sounding. Besides, the sounds in English are very ugly as if people have no normal and healthy articulation or as if they have few teeth. In Italian, Russian and German situation is more adequate. But the ideal is the pronounciation which coincides with written symbols.

Bullshit!

In other words, I am right. You can't object to it.

You are just a person who don't have any arguments. That is why you are trying to offend me. But the truth is hard and fast. English is as abnormal as possible. Starting with "you" and "You". It's great! Very interesting and wisely.

I am agree!

This is a good state of English? But of course you don't notice it. You don't want. Because you decided to notice only mine. Without explanations again.

Simply because no  one else managed to make that many mistakes while issuing such ludicrous statements  :-D

You can not prove it. That's why you evade direct questions. You can just slander me. I think you like it.

I don't need to — you have already proven it yourself with all your posts :-)))

My English has improved significantly in few past years, however, even now I rarely read English books (though in the Internet, I read texts mostly in English), and if I do, it's something I've never read in Russian before and usually that also hasn't been translated.

Hi there,

If you are only beginning to learn English, you'd better read books adapted for your level of English (usually there are four or five levels). But if your English is advanced enough then reading will surely broaden your vocabulary as well as improve your understanding of style, humor and other things that only fiction can possess.
The more you read in English the easier and more enjoyable it (reading) will become for you.
Generally, if you come across more than 15% of unknown words in the book you will eventually lose interest for that particular book. The best percentage for easy reading is 5-10 % of unknown words in a book you choose to read. That is why I do recomend graded reading.

Take care and good luck.

Looks like this topic is not that active, but I feel obligated to add a comment in addition to my vote. I clicked on the second option: on average I read 70-90 books a year, 10-15 of them in English. If a book written in English has a good Russian translation I usually choose it over reading the original. However all the fanfiction I read is in English, so in reality it is a 50/50 situation :-)

Hi there! It seems the topic is almost abandoned, but maybe there'll be someone alive out there. :)

I've been reading books in English since 2014, but my "rate" of reading is quite varying because of certain reasons. Two novels in 2014 and three ones in 2015 were followed by one each year after that. Regarding shorter fiiction, there was a "surge" in reading novelettes and short stories in 2016 and 2017, so it compensated, to certain degree, the lack of reading novels. The only I can say is that the entire current amount of books being read in English fairly doesn't satisfy my needs...

I know that I haven't read many books and short fiction stories in English by now, so there are many to follow. But, as one can notice, I try to write the reviews on what I've read in the original, paying special attention to the quality of Russian translation(s). I think they may be considered as, sort of, advices for future readers which translation (if any) they should prefer.

P.S. It's too damn hard to accept that some books/stories you liked a lot in English may never be translated into Russian. Not that it's a problem to negotiate with authors and their agents — they are very friendly most of time, — but it's enormously difficult to find a Russian publisher for these stories...

It's a pleasure to read in original. Poetry especially.
