Sometimes it can be easy to read books in French that you already know in English - the first few Harry Potters, for example. It can be tough going, but you already know the storyline, and a lot of words you don't know will become obvious from the context and your prior knowledge, cutting down on the story-breaking dictionary checks.

Sure. I do something similar to this: read programming manuals or texts on other subjects I'm familiar with. –  fremmedehenvendelser Mar 10 at 16:30

You can also read some newspapers or magazines. That's what I do to learn english :).
