I concur with the people who agree that one should read as many books as he can.I have developed the reading habit for a decade.So why do I like reading books,here are some reasons why I am gonna to read more books .The first reason is I can know much more from reading books . There may be some knowledge which I didn't know before, these knowledge may make me astounded and in this way I will pick up some knowledge which will make me ahead of the game . The second reason is reading a book which was written by people which lived in ancient times may tell us something which is very amazing that we did not know before .This will help us to gain experience.Thirdly,it may tell me about some truth and help me to develop a willing to research and discover the book of life.This may tell us some priceless words,for example,'stay hungury,stay foolish.'.Forthly reading books lets us make full used of our spare time.Above all , that's why I agree that one should read as many books as he can.
Reading the old man and the sea About the author Ernest Hemingway,one of the greatest American writers in 20th century,is the representative of “lost generation” writer.He was born on July 21,1899,in Oak Park,Illinois.worked as a reporter after graduating from high school in 1917.,amd served as an ambulance driver in the Italian infantry and was wounded just before his 19th birthday.Hospitalized,Hemingway fell in love with an older nurse.In 1954,Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.In his life,Hemingway married four times and wrote numerous essays,short stories and novels.The effects of Hemingway's lifelong depressions,illnesses and accidents caught up with him.In July 1961,he committed suicide in Ketchum,Idaho.About the book The old man and the sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works.Told in language of great simplicity and power ,it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman ,down on his luck ,and his supreme ordeal ---a relentless ,agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream .Here Hemingway recasts ,in strikingly contemporary style,the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat ,of personal triumph won from loss .Written in 1952 ,this hugely successfully novella confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and played a huge part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature .About the old man Santiago is described as a failure by other fishermen in the village for catching no fish for a long time .However,he should be regarded as a hero all his life ,when he had played the hand game with the great Negro from Cienfuegos who was the strongest man on the docks ;when he fight with that large marlin ; when he struggle with the sharks .You can find his optimism,confidence,wisdom,perseverance and bravery anywhere .I admire him not only because these but also his regarding these as the things he had to do ,the rules he had to obey .Such a man is really a man ,a marvelous man .All the characters of him is worth being learned not only in Hemingway's times ,but for ever ; not only for a certain kind of man ,but for all of us .Let's always remember his word “But man is not made for defeat,” he said.“A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”。

Boys and girls,
As Francis Bacon once said, reading makes a full man. A good book can affect our life in one way or another. My Life Story by Helen Keller is one such book as touched my heart. It is about how Helen overcame her physical disabilities and succeeded by struggling in her long and hard learning period.
From the book, I learned that whenever we come across difficulties or even misfortune, we should never give in or run away. Instead, we are supposed to face them bravely and try to find ways out. Reading can not only improve our ability to understand the world, but also wash our souls. To live an enjoyable and meaningful life, let's read more good books!
That's all. Thank you!
As is well known, books teach us to learn life, truth, science and many other useful things. They increase our knowledge, broaden our minds and strengthen our character. In other words, they are our good teachers and wise friends. This is the reason why our parents always encourage us to read more books.
Reading is a good thing, but we must pay great attention to the choice of books. It is true that we can derive benefits from good books. However, bad books will do us more harm than good.

7.英语作文：Reading , an outdated thing
Nowdays,reading is not as popular as before,and people read less and less books.It seems like that reading has sliped from our minds,and we are not interested in it any more.
Why we don't like reading or read less books?First of all,Some people say they have not enough time to read,because they are so busy in their business,and reading becomes a luxury in their life.Further more,as the development of the computer and internet,more people choose going online as their entertainment,because they can find more fun in it.Finally,they don't have a quiet environment to read books,noises and continuing interuption from other people make them can't concetrate on the reading.So they just have to give up reading.
So reading is going farther and farther from us,and I hope more people can spare some time to read,and you can read books on the internet instead of playing games or chating.We also should make an quiet environment for the people.Thus,more people will like reading.
The book that I like best is Pinocchio. When I was a schoolboy, I didn't like to go to school. I didn't like doing my homework everyday. Sometimes I lied. The reason is that I don't know the importance of knowledge. 18 years passedwhen I read Pinocchio in a university library. If I had read Pinocchio at that time, I would have become better. Now I have my own child, and she is a schoolgirl. I have bought Pinocchio both in English and in Chinese. I wish she will be better than her father for she has read Pinocchio several times up to now.。
