Simplified reading material

Hello! I was curious to know if there were any literary or non-pedagogic materials written in Simplified. A big attraction to older editions for me has been the actual literary material I could read beyond dry business letters, but I'd be delighted to find out if there is even a scrap of non-textbook Simplified out there! My eyes are about to fall out from reading about customers and stores.

Especially with the continual emphasis put on reading well-written shorthand, it seems odd that only one type of material would be available in Simplified.

Thanks for any ideas!
