Start including some reading as part of your daily practice, but you need to have a good study technique in order for it to be productive. Instead of worrying about the individual words, try focusing on the phrases. Identify a sentence or phrase that is particularly interesting to you (whether that's because it's useful, poetic, funny, or whatever else) and write it down with the English translation. By paying attention to the phrase you're absorbing sentence structures, idioms, alternative meanings or uses for common words, and also the rhythm and flow of fluent speech.
