Can anyone suggest some good books for me to improve my urdu reading and writing??
I can speak urdu very fluently, and i can read a bit but it needs a lot of practise. So is there any books or even courses in london anyone can suggest for me??

If you can't read Urdu fluently, ask somebody to send you Urdu textbooks used in Pakistani schools for classes third, fourth, fifth ("Urdu ki teesri kitaab" etc) on... (depending on your present ability.)

Once you are able to read fluently, a number of good books (of a higher level) can be recommended to you.

It depends on how much you can read already . try reading urdu newspapers first , read one article at a time and make sure you understand what you are reading . if you have trouble understanding or reading , ask around . then you can move on to reading short stories in Urdu written by famous Urdu writers .

Excellent advice!

Ibn-e-Insha's masterpiece, a wonderful mix of subtle wit, humour and deep, biting satire should be a must read in all primary (or maybe secondary) schools :)
