What is the ‘Reading Zone’ section?
Reading zone is our attempt to introduce and invite out users into the magical world of read. The purpose of the initiative is simple: to make sure the most important element in the learning of a language, that is ‘Reading’ is not left out. The section will consist of three sub-sections:
‘Daily Reads’ is a section where you will get the best of the daily reading links from all across the globe. These will be culled from the best dailies, magazines and websites available. ‘Books to read’ is a personal favorite of ours. Here we provide you book reviews of the ones we have read and we would recommend you read. Remember, the reviews are not ‘LITERARY CRITIQUES’ but ‘PERSONNEL EXPERIENCES’ shared with our users.
Q & A: On, Of & About Reading
How to read: Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts ,others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.
Different types of readers: Readers may be divided into four classes:
1.) Sponges, who absorb all that they read and return it in nearly the same state, only a little dirtied.
2.) Sand-glasses, who retain nothing and are content to get through a book for the sake of getting through the time.
3.) Strain-bags, who retain merely the dregs of what they read.
4.) Mogul diamonds, equally rare and valuable, who profit by what they read, and enable others to profit by it also.
Difference between a good reader and a poor-reader:The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them. So effectively you are as good as an illiterate would be.
