Well, I think I can describe myself as a bookworm, but actually very few books leave a deep impression on me, and one of them is Harry Potter series, especially Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. So last weekend, I took my copy from my bookshelf and read that again.
The Harry Potter series introduces the story of a boy wizard named Harry, who fights against the bad guy named Voldmort. And in this book, Hary was chosen by the Goblet of Fire to have a race with three other students. The race went on smoothly, but in the end Voldmort revived and killed one of the students.
I have to admit that in the beginning, I started reading Harry Potter series because of its great reputation, but as soon as I began reading it, I couldn’t stop because the story, I mean the plots, they appeal to me so much. Whenever I was reading, I always felt like I was studying and living with Harry, Ron and Hermine, who are the main characters of the series, as if I could use magic and I was their campanion. Especially in this book, the race was so exciting and incredible that I can remember every detail of it. Moreover, it is a story about courage and love, the characters are always ready to sacrifice their lives to save their loved ones*, although this sounds like cli-chet I was always moved to tears when the characters died, so I reccomended it to all of my friends, and I had also joint the club, discussing the plots as well as my feelings with other fans. In summary, it is a book that worths reading.
1.In your country, who would ask the children to read, schools or parents?
Actually both of them do, but the situation varies from person to person. In some families, the parents values reading, regarding the activity an important method in order to explore and develop kids1 mental world, but things are different in some other families. However, in every school, teachers attach importance to reading, and they encourage their students to read as many useful books as they can.
2.Do you prefer paper books or e-books?
Either of the two is OK, but a gun to my head, I choose paper books. I am a person who spend long time on reading, and if I read e-books, the screen will damage my eyesight more compared to paper books. In addition, I really enjoy the smell of paper, I think thafs also part of joy of reading.
3.What kind of books do children read?
It’s hard to say, since this varies from child to child. For most of girls, they prefer fairy tales and princess stories, and most boys love adventure stories. But I also know girls who like history stories and boys who enjoy mythology. Whats more, their tastes change with their aget so it’s not fixed.
4.Do you think parents should continue reading?
Of course they do. This is not only a must for them to make progress and gain more knowledge, it is also about setting up examples for their children. If parents never read, it is of small possibility for their children to love reading.
5.Do you think printed books will continue to exist?
Frankly speaking, I have no idea. Although in these days e-books appear and they are cheaper and more flexible, printed books win in terms of protecting eyesight. Different people have different tastes and needs in reading, so they can choose from these two forms, but who knows what will happen in the future?
