Recommended Beginner's Reading

I've a fair handle on basic Brazilian Portuguese sentence structure; my native language is Spanish. What are some good books to build vocabulary as a beginner/intermediate speaker? It's a subjective question, of course. So tell me which ones you've enjoyed reading?

Hey Everybody The Duolingo has the best portuguese course on the internet. It's really worth studying.

But, if you are in search of books and audiobooks, i think these links can help:

I can agree to Patrick. The Portuguese (features both mixed Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese) section in Duolingo is really well done, even though the beginning might be a bit too easy for you, considering it starts at the very basics.

To start getting used to read Portuguese, Portuguese subtitles in movies actually really helped as well.As for books, I could only suggest a childrens book that I found quite amusing, but an easy start. "Diário de um Banana". According to Google it can also be found in Brazilian Portuguese.

Can't speak for any books, though I am a huge fan of www.duolingo.com. It works like Rosetta Stone, but it's free and proven to be more effective. Also by using it you are helping translate the internet into Portugese. You start off with basic courses and work your way to more advanced material.
