“Books and friends should be few but good”, says an
English proverb. “Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a
book! They teach us and open their hearts to us as brothers”, wrote Charles
Kingsley, an English writer of the 19th century. The book is certainly one of
the greatest inventions of man. It is a friend and a teacher. We learn many
things by reading books. Books teach people to live. After reading some books
it is easy to understand what should be done and what must not be done. One can
learn a lot by reading books.
There are a lot of libraries in our country, where we
can choose any book we need. Everyone has the right to use public libraries.
The librarian is always ready to help you to find a book on any subject, even
if you do not know the title of the book you want. Those who know how to use
the library catalogue can find the books without consulting the librarian.
Talks, exhibitions and other events take place in
libraries. Book lists are prepared beforehand so that new interests can be
developed afterwards among the visitors. Except reading special and scientific
literature it is a great pleasure to read belles-lettres.
Different people like to read different kinds of it.
It depends on one's taste and character. Some people prefer detectives or
science fiction. Others like historical books. Girls and women prefer love
stories. Children like comics very much.
As for me, I prefer ... My favourite book is ... It is
very interesting and exciting. The main character of the book is ... He (she)
is a real personality. He (she) is clever (kind, courageous, strong, merry). I
wish to be like him (her).
