It sounds very simple, but many people ignore this advice. The more books you read, the more lexicon you get. You learn new expressions and constructions. In the future, you will notice how your writing becomes better. This will help not only to improve your skills but also make texts simpler and more enjoyable. Do not force yourself to read what you do not want. Choose your favorite authors and enjoy the process.
OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS
