  主旨:The main claim is encouraging people value reading

  于全文解析如下:

  As an uncle I’m inconsistent about too many things.

  Birthdays, for example. My nephew Mark had one on Sunday, and I didn’t remember — and send a text — until 10 p.m., by which point he was asleep.

  But about books, I’m steady. Relentless. I’m incessantly asking my nephews and nieces what they’re reading and why they’re not reading more. I’m reliably hurling novels at them, and also at friends’ kids. I may well be responsible for 10 percent of all sales of “The Fault in Our Stars,” a teenage love story to be released as a movie next month. Never have I spent money with fewer regrets, because I believe in reading — not just in its power to transport but in its power to transform.

  【功能】用故事引出主旨,表明作者对书籍阅读的态度,并启发读者思考

  【策略】personal example,diction,tone,ethos

  【解析】作者在开篇通过个人经历作为事例来说明自己对孩子阅读书籍的支持,并用幽默的语气来表明自己的态度和观点。

  So I was crestfallen on Monday, when a new report by Common Sense Media came out. It showed that 30 years ago, only 8 percent of 13-year-olds and 9 percent of 17-year-olds said that they “hardly ever” or never read for pleasure. Today, 22 percent of 13-year-olds and 27 percent of 17-year-olds say that. Fewer than 20 percent of 17-year-olds now read for pleasure “almost every day.” Back in 1984, 31 percent did. What a marked and depressing change.

  【功能】进一步说明现在的阅读状况

  【策略】statistics from credible source

  【解析】作者用可靠的数据有力证明了孩子对阅读兴趣下降的大趋势。

  I know, I know: This sounds like a fogy’s crotchety lament. Or, worse, like self-interest. Professional writers arguing for vigorous reading are dinosaurs begging for a last breath. We’re panhandlers with a better vocabulary.

  【功能】让步

  【策略】pathos,analogy

  【解析】作者用承认自己守旧诉诸于情感,并用生动的类比来说明方向观点。
