Will I learn a language fairly well if I mainly just read books?

it will be useful but you still need to listen and speak, practice language by reading to be able to write, and listening to be able to speak

Learning a language requires 4 language skills, reading, writing, speaking and listening. Language is used for learning and communication. So if you read books, that is a good element to incorporate!

Everyone has its own aims; if your aim is to become a writer in a (yet) foreign language, reading, reading and reading is the suggestion that good authors usually give to their pupils; my opinion (based upon how our mind works) is that the best you enjoy your learning path, the more you will learn.

Whilst reading books is very valuable, I suggest that you also build up your listening skills. Here's a link to help you http://www.italki.com/knowledge/page/IMPROVE%20YOUR%20ENGLISH%20LISTENING%20SKILLS.htm

Reading is a great way to learn. It's also a great way to structure a learning pair meeting. Pick a book you and a partner are interested in and read a section. Then discuss. Ask questions of one another. Then you will practice your reading and your speaking while enriching your life through a good book.
