My level is intermediate or upper-intermediate. I have speaking practice several times per week with native speaker(she is not teacher). I write short essays and my friends help me to check it. I read news/blogs in English almost freely and listen podcasts everyday. And of course I learn words, collocations and idioms. My aim is to find work in an international company(software development).

Maybe it sounds strange, but I dislike that it's unsystematic education.

Amazon gives tons of various books and it's hard to choose something. Does anybody knows some good book or course of books? Thanks.

Put some works translated from your own language into the mix - not works you already know, but authors or genres you like. It helps overcome the 'distance' of reading in English. – StoneyB Oct 21 '12 at 0:24
