The purpose of this study is to implement a level-based extensive reading program in school settings in order to help students develop English proficiency and to enhance positive attitudes toward English reading. The book-flood program was applied to students assigned to the extensive reading club for eight months. They were encouraged to read texts from a variety of genres within their proficiency level in regular club meetings and outside of class. For effective reading, they were offered several tools created by the teacher. Data collection was done through learning style questionnaires, teacher interviews, written tests, and group journals, so as to examine the effects of the study. The results of the study are as follows: 1) The language skills, particularly reading, were evenly improved in all three levels. 2) The students in the highest group developed their own personal reading styles, while the intermediate group showed the most positive attitude toward reading.
