Describe an exciting book
1. Do people read more nowadays? 目前大家阅读量大吗?
Well, it's quite hard to say exactly but I guess not less for sure 'cause more people can afford to read nowadays thanks to e-books which have a low price. I can also say that more and more people feel some 'reading hunger', some of them for classical literature but most for professional and business books which help them bolster their networking, leadership and time- management skills. One more factor which makes me think that people read more these days is the fact that it's easy to pick reading material on the Internet from the Internet junk to worthy literature. So, present-day people definitely read more, to my mind.
2. Do you read before going to bed? 你临睡前会去看书吗?
Oh, yeah, almost daily except for those days when I am too tired to do anything before sleep. I guess reading enhances my sleep, it helps my mind separate my sleep time from the stresses of daily living, it relaxes me and lets me enjoy a higher quality of sleep throughout the night. What is more, if I read some light romantic literature before going to bed, I always set my mind for pleasant dreams and, as a result, have a great mood the following morning, which is wonderful.
3. How will e-books affect paper books? 免费电子书怎样危害纸质书籍?
Well, more and more people will switch to screens in the coming years, I guess, but I don't think paper books will disappear entirely. Print will exist, but it will be in a different realm and will appeal to a very limited audience. I don't think that printed books will eventually join the ranks of clay tablets, scrolls and typewritten pages but it may well be that one day there will come a point when print just doesn't make a lot of sense. That's it.
4. What's the difference between films and books? 影片和图书有什么不一样?
Well, first of all, books give in-depth understanding of characters and plot while movies are more a kind of summary of books. What is more, while reading a book we pay attention to every line, imagine how things are going and create the scenes in our heads in fine detail. When it comes to movies we just see everything as it is without giving our imagination a chance to fill our heads with amazing pictures which usually far exceed the visual effects displayed in movies. And the last difference I should mention is the fact that watching a is quite quick while reading a book is d lengthy process which makes us even more involved in the plot and extends our pleasure.
