Describe a place where you read and write(not your home)
You should say:
Where it is
How often you go there
Who you go there with
And how you feel about this place
The longest relationship I have ever had is an 18 year relationship with reading. The match?maker(媒人) is an old library in my hometown, where I still go back to during vacations, maybe twice a year, which depends . I love that antique(古、旧) place that witnessed most of the childhood memories I hold dear to me. Sitting among lines of modern buildings, the library, painted red, is like an ancient maiden about to wed. Going inside, the wooden tables and chairs immediately give readers a flight back to old civilizations when people were reading and writing with reverence(尊敬). Traditional calligraphy(书法) is hung on the walls, exhibiting the conventional attitude towards reading and studying. Readers craving ancient civilization will be satisfied in this area. Going deeper, the style goes through a drastic(剧烈的) change into modern decoration, with famous writers’ and educators’ portraits hanging on walls. In this section, one can find books about modern art, literature, and technology. The distinct layout makes it easy for people to retrieve(检索) what they want to read. Actually I usually went there by myself so that I could enjoy it more. During those years, I would immerse myself in traditional Chinese literature, memorizing poems and prose work of previous dynasties. Also, I would find a corner table to enjoy a piece of tranquility(安静) and to meditate and write about things that I love, for example, character analysis of Lin Daiyu, the female protagonist in The Dream of Red Mansions. I still visit there when I can and pick up the books I read years ago to recall the good memories of innocence and joy.
