    You can practice writing of course.
    I like to share blogs and mark up the text with red and green colours, then add numbered points for explanations. It is good to write as you can really go to town and analyse every little grammar mistake. There's lots more to writing than grammar too. We all know that we can write something which is perfewct grammatically but is really bad English.

    Let me know if you'd like to try some.

    It depends on your reading style. What do you like most reading?
    It depends also on your level, there are good simplified English book for instance by Penguin and other editors.

    Here you can find some suggestions:
