The ability to read in English as the second language is important for academic advancement and for professional and selfdevelopment. It is believed that those who read extensively in English, not only will gain significantly in their reading abilities and other language skills, but also will display positive attitudes toward reading in general.

Hence, this paper suggests two types of extensive reading programme, which can be adapted by English Language practitioners in developing good reading habits among students. Good reading habits can be cultivated. It should start right from young and should be nurtured well into adulthood. It is definitely important for students' academic advancement as well as professional and self- development.
