Extensive reading is great

My reading ability is improving, even in my native language.

I've been reading English books every day. Recently I'm reading The Life Project. I get up at 5 AM, and start reading until 6 AM. After walking exercise around 10 AM, I continue to read. Usually I finish to read about 30-50 pages everyday.

Surprisingly, reading English books improves Japanese reading ability. Japanese is my native language. I could lately read 2 books in Japanese very fast. Maybe it's so-called reading fast (sokudoku, 速読). But in Japanese, it's tough to read vertical sentences, because my eyeball is optimized to read horizontal sentences for reading English books.

Anyway, extensive reading improves unexpected aspect of human ability. I recommend it.
