The Power of Reading.
Stephen D. Krashen.

Power of Reading Want to improve your writing style? Develop your vocabulary? Understand grammar? Spell better? Krashen details study after study that show that free reading, reading what you want, is the best, if not only way, to improve your literary skills.

Krashen writes:

Studies showing that reading enhances literacy development lead to what should be an uncontroversial conclusion: Reading is good for you. The research, however, supports a stronger conclusion: Reading is the only way, the only way we become good readers, develop a good writing style, an adequate vocabulary, advance grammatical competence, and the only way we become good spellers.
