As others have mentioned, reading only isn't a good thing. You'll need
to code alongside reading.
You also might need to have a goal/project to motivate you to code.
Starting small is a good thing. Or you could help out some of the
smaller php projects that have only a few coders. Fixing bugs in a
project can be a great help, and you'll learn a lot.
If you don't have any project in mind, you can go to codecademy.com
or some of the other interactive learning sites to start coding.
I just checked, they've implemented PHP now, I haven't tried this. But
