Task 2 – Reading.

Now that you are able to read, you might want to think about what you are reading. Of course, the ability to read well and quickly is especially important when it comes to doing research. But don’t forget that reading should also be a pleasure. From myths and legends to modern day fiction, there are so many excellent stories to entertain and delight you. Not every book will be your cup of tea, so it’s fine if you favour a particular type of story. Just remember that a lot of thought has gone into writing it, so enjoy every word.
