Read as much as you can. Read for your enjoyment. Read to find out things you need or want to find out about, not for just learning english.

Understand the topic of book

Understand the type of text, book you are reading. If it is a newspaper, magzine or book of what genre.

Read intensively if you want to practice the fundamentals such as the punctuations and grammer and to learn vocabulary.

Read out loud if you can. Because you get involved with your eyes, as you look at the words, and with your ears, as you listen to them.  

Try to guess the meaning of the new words and writes them down so you can look up their meaning in a good dictionary. and study the words later

Annotate your reading

While reading if you felt like, you can highlight or underline any important paragraphs, sentences or words.

Read in portions

Read with a friend

When you are trying to read something, read only about the things you are interested in. It will motivate you.

Keep track of the texts, books or newspapers you have read. Record it down how many and how much time it took to read it.
