Daily reading is really important. It should be enjoyable, and sometimes challenging. If a book is too hard, it can be demotivating; if a book is too easy it is unlikely to lead to progress. Make lists of words that you don't understand, patterns that you notice, things you like about the book and things that you don't. Try to summarise the book (tell it in short - perhaps just three sentences for a chapter or even the whole book).
Try to read a variety of books: fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
