The best place for ER references is at the ER website.
Don't miss the online journal "Reading in a foreign language" which has scholarly articles about ER (and other matters of course!).
Oxford University Press Japan have put a free 'Guide to Graded Reading' on their website. It is a downloadable Adobe pdf file. It is also available in print - contact OUP directly. Click here for the English version or the Japanese version. And OUP has another of my articles.

There is a series of articles about graded reading available at the main Oxford University Press readers site. It is a series of articles that appeared throughout 2001. It is inside the Teacher's Pages. The direct url does not work because you have to have an ID first (free).
There are supplementary notes for the Oxford University Press / David English House Certificate in Teaching Japanese Students in which Extensive Reading was discussed.
First try the The Extensive Reading Pages, then ... in no particular order. ...
