To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
The many cannot be thought as unlitteriate; they have skills in other areas that do not extend to literature. The few, who are often thought to be true lovers of books are often not. Lewis explains this characterization by sharing an experience he had with a professor who did not want to speak about the literature he was teaching to his
Reading fiction on the other hand is a different topic. It is a basic human need to fulfill our mental wellness and reading fiction fulfills it. Being so focused in the “productive” world and being entertained by other means such as films and games pull people away from the necessity of reading. In this essay, I will be talking about the importance and the value of reading and how media has affected our view of it. One of the most common reasons stated for not being able to read is the fact that one simply doesn’t have enough time to spare for a chapter or two.
Graff paints reading as an insufferable and tedious chore that must be endured and the way that one is able to complete such a task is through theoretical analysis of the text. However, some students have a passion for reading that can drive them to spend time studying and interpreting a text. This would lead to more original ideas than interpretations that are influenced by what other critics say about a text or by the reader being told how to read a text. Graff does not believe in Bloom’s idea of “just reading”: “As readers, we are necessarily concerned with both the questions posed by the text and the questions we bring to it from our own differing interests and cultural backgrounds” (46-47). While Graff views this as an unavoidable contamination of “pure” reading, I believe this can also be viewed as a unique perspective that could be lost by an introduction to literary theory.
It is very unusual for me to not have a book started, but if I do not it is most likely due to prioritizing school work over leisurely reading. Whether it be after a bad day or when I simply need some alone time, writing is a way that I communicate, and if I am not writing, I am reading someone else’s writing. Consequently, both things describe who I
Graduate School Dissertation Chair at Northcentral University, Dr. Jennifer Duffy, explained, “Reading is a fundamental skill needed to function in society." (Reading Improves Memory, Concentration and Stress). Society needs people who can read. To be able to read quickly, or to be able to read in depth are both necessary skills that the world needs to be able to continue to progress. Words are how we express ourselves and a boss may not always be around to verbally explain a new task.
This quote is important because it shows that even the highest-minded people curse. This is important because yes, there are curse words in books, however, people can learn so much from a certain book, even with a curse word in it. High minded people can curse and have extremely informational books that can open up a person’s mind to the world and they can learn so much from that person, therefore, it is harsh to ban a book like that even though it has a curse word in it. Banning books takes away some important lessons children need to learn to be able to develop better and grow up smarter. “It is the unknown we fear when we look into death and darkness, nothing more” (Rowling 26).
At first I thought that I would not manage to handle the expectations that arise from acquiring the skills, but it turns out I was wrong. Reading and writing have provided me with the possibility to gain more knowledge in various fields, understand, evaluate, and appreciate other people’s opinions, express myself eloquently, and build the career that I have chosen for myself. As expected, reading and writing enables one to gain further knowledge on certain issues, depending on what one is reading. For example, since my grandfather was a poet and professor as well, I was able to translate much of what he wrote and interpret it in English. In this way I could deliver his ideas to a wider audience.
First issues that we choose as a topic in our assignments are the inappropriate contents. Reading might not be familiar with Malaysian but we are not far behind in reading as well. Getting Malaysian to read books regardless it genre may lead to negative self-development. This is because the genre of the books must be suitable with the age of the people itself. Children and teenagers are curious about life also they love to explore new things.
Over the years I have developed few healthy habits; one of the best qualities among these is the quality of reading books. It is true that book reading is considered as boring among the young people’s, but there are youngsters those who love to read books but in my case I was in the hot zone. I used to hate books; it’s just felt boring for me, but later in my college days when I came across with one of Vivekananda’s biography it’s just changed my life. Once that I hated to read the most later felt in love with it. I realize that book reading is boring until you find your purpose through it.
