面对当下的“阅读危机”,我们年轻一代是否该有所反思?

        When I was a kid my mumused to say I would read the back of a sauce bottle if I didn’t have a book on the go. It was true, and even now that reading habit has stuck with me, I always have at least one book being read, sometimes I might have two or three at various stages of being read.And I’m talking about real books, books made out of paper,books that you can hold in your hand, to read, at the table, on the metro or my favourite place to read—in the bath.

   But reading in itself is in decline.Indeed,a recent survey tells us that Chinese people read only 4.77 printed books a year on average and in the U.S. 25 percent of the population claim not to have read a book in the last year! So what’s stopping people fromreading?
  The obvious answer of course is the huge impact that technology has made on all of our lives. Why read a book when you can watch a movie or TV series on your portable device on the metro going home? For younger people books may not be as immediately exciting and attention grabbing as an online game. With stories you have to work at it, stick with it, follow the twists and turns of the plot. There are no cracks or shortcuts with a book. You have to turn page after page.
  But you can still get lost in a book. We all have this thing called imagination. It’s much more powerful than any computer; in fact, it’s worth remembering that any online game has first been written,in words,as a story by its author(s). It’s the sum total of his or her or their imagination.
  So we need to read because if we do not read we start to block our ability to think widely, to have an imagination. Reading is a process that involves completely different pathways in the brain. Pathways that allow us to draw comparisons and make connections to other things we have read and seen in the past. If you do not read this will ultimately impact not just on your academic performance, but also to your economic performance and ultimately to your ability to connect with a civic life and political life.
  So take a leaf out of my book, run a hot bath, or find a comfortable chair and get yourself lost in a good book for a few hours—there are loads, for free, in your local library.
