Personally, I don't think you can learn to write by reading books. Don't get me wrong, learning to be a good writer takes a lot of reading and a lot of education. But you can't learn what you need to know in a book - at least not all of it.

Learning to be a "good" writer is a challenge in itself. Define "good." Does it mean media writing? Does it mean dramatic writing? Expository writing? There are a ton of different writing styles and corresponding jobs. The only thing I have really found that works is experience. Just keep writing, keep listening to the critics, keep improving. The thing about writing is that no matter how hard you work on it, there is probably something that can be improved somewhere by someone in the world - in other words, you are constantly learning to be a good writer, because the definition of being a good writer changes as quickly as your job.

You can try William Zinsser's 'On Writing Well'. There are some really good points in it.
