I'm really interested in reading light novels but there is only a handful I can find here in the states like Log Horizon. However, there are a lot of light novels adapted into anime that I would very much like to continue reading. I pay for books unless they aren't available in my country so it's a bummer that there isn't a large variety. However, sometimes I see people being able to gather information from the light novels and I'm like... how???

some people know the language and gets their hands on the LN (either through non-legit means or by buying the books / ebooks)
even if LN aren't available in stores (kinokuniya hardly carries any), you can always import it through sites like amazon or rakuten.

sometimes I find them on the net with mini translators on the side so I know what's going on, but I don't buy nor own any of them, but I have found them on the net in the past, if that's helpful any. a lot of times, just search the net and see what comes of it, can't go wrong. before joining and/or visiting the site much, search the site itself that way you know you aren't infecting your system/device.

If you don't have eyes... you should see a doctor.

I use the places list below to get my info to find out the different light novels available in English and i most get my stuff from amazon or J Club.

https://englishlightnovels.com/list-of-light-novels/

and this one is great for learning about light novels not in English so I can go bug the Yen Press, Seven Seas, J club or whoever to pick it up. http://lndb.info/
well this and using Amazon Japan and Google Translate to learn about it.

It depends. If its something that I really love I try and grab a physical copy. Otherwise I'll use Book Walker. Something like Kokoro Connect on Baka Tsuki, as there is no legal means to read them in english for some reason. If its something I'm not sure about I grab a pdf.

what do you consider a light novel? 100 pages or less? Animal Farm would fit that. i also consider A Clockworks Orange a light novel, but it's like 200 or something. usually i either get it from the library or buy it from a book store because i like holding the book and i don't own a kindle/e-reader [though it is tempting]

I recently signed up over at https://j-novel.club and I have to say the idea of "simulcasting light novels" is a new one on me. I can't say I disliked the results and the format even encouraged me to try a few things I might have otherwise ignored -- as a result I found a new title to add to my permanent collection: "How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom".
