I think intensive reading works better if you use texts on similar topics for a while, because a lot of the vocabulary is bound to repeat itself; I might do the same thing with Hebrew and Hungarian (I'd do it for Urdu as well but I'm not sure how to get Nastaleeq onto the print shop's computer, dunno if even my PDF reader supports it...).

Cool idea. I totally agree about reading texts on similar topics. For Urdu, you can google the free font Jameel Noori Nastaleeq and install that, or just convert your text to Naskh which should be easily printable.

OK, I'll try the font. I don't want to print anything in Naskh because that won't prepare me for reading any printed books or newspapers in Pakistan (I want to be able to immediately recognise common words so I can read quickly).

That makes sense. I actually have a lot of Urdu books printed in naskh, but you're right to focus on nasta'liq which is obviously the dominant script.
