Reading skill plays an important role as it is an indispensible tool in majority language classrooms. Selection and development of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) reading materials relevant to local context must be carefully done by the teachers, because every internet resource or course book may not be appropriate in all classrooms.  This paper gives an overview about reading material development and the selection of authentic materials for designing reading tasks in the English as a foreign language classroom in Uzbekistan. It also looks for theories which support the efforts in developing culturally and locally appropriate EFL reading materials.
