1. What kind of weather do you like?
I love it when the weather is gloomy, or when it’s windy and the cold wind hits my face. I like it when it’s so windy that you could hear whistles. But unfortunately, I live in California so I only enjoy the weather for a short period of time, most of the time, it’s just a lot of humidity and hot weather.
2. Do you like wet weather or dry one?
Definitely dry weather. If the weather is dry, you won’t feel too uncomfortable even if it’s hot or cold. I like the dry sunny days.
3. What is the typical weather in your hometown?
The weather is quite extreme here, actually. I mean it's humid and scorching in summer and freezing cold in winter. Although spring and autumn are rather mild and delightful, they are normally too short even to notice.
4. What do people do differently in different seasons?
Weather affects people's lives to a large extent. Apparently, outdoor activities in winter are limited. It seems winter only good for watching the 1st snow fall but you have to shovel snow after then. However, there is so much more to do during the summer like playing games outside, going to the beach and the pool, getting tan or eating ice cream on a warm summer night.

What kind of books do children read?
I think I am a great reader, and there are so many books in which I am deeply engrossed.
The book I recently read is a novel called The Tales of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, one of the greatest novelists of the 19th century. I got this book as a birthday gift from my sister several weeks ago. My sister said that it was one of the classic novels in the world and she believed that I would like this novel. So I started to read this novel on the day I received it.
My sister was right, I was soon attracted by this book and read it again and again. I liked this classic novel for a number of reasons. First, I was quite impressed by the vivid descriptions of the characters and their interactions. I mean that Charles Dickens was really a master of the English language; you can form a mental picture of what is going on in the novel and you will be touched by the personalities of these characters. Second, the plot is full of twists and turns, always making me eager to find out what will happen next.
And finally, I also learn more about the French Revolution. Dickens described the story under the background of French Revolution, which makes the book more than a novel but also the reflection of the French Revolution.
