Reading Wisely

1st Week – 1st Day

A youngster who reads voraciously, though indiscriminately, does not necessarily gain in wisdom over the teenager who is more selective in his reading choices. A young man who has read the life story of every eminent athlete of the twentieth century, or a coed who has steeped herself in every social-protest novel she can get her hand on, may very well be learning all there is to know in a very limited area. But books are replete with many wonders that it is often discouraging to see bright young people limit their own experiences.

  • Voracious –rakus
  • Voraciously – dengan rakus
  • Though – meskipun
  • Indiscriminately – tanpa pandang bulu
