When I was in fourth grade, I worked part-time as a paperboy. Mrs. Stanley was one of my customers. She'd watch me coming down her street, and by the time I'd biked up to her doorstep, there'd be a cold drink waiting. I'd sit and drink while she talked.
Mrs. Stanley talked mostly about her dead husband, "Mr. Stanley and I went shopping this morning." she'd say. The first time she said that, soda(汽水) went up my nose.
I told my father how Mrs. Stanley talked as if Mr. Stanley were still alive. Dad said she was probably lonely, and that I ought to sit and listen and nod my head and smile, and maybe she'd work it out of her system. So that's what I did, and it turned out Dad was right. After a while she seemed content to leave her husband over at the cemetery(墓地).
I finally quit delivering newspapers and didn't see Mrs. Stanley for several years. Then we crossed paths at a church fund-raiser(募捐活动). She was spooning mashed potatoes and looking happy. Four years before, she'd had to offer her paperboy a drink to have someone to talk with. Now she had friends. Her husband was gone, but life went on.
I live in the city now, and my paperboy is a lady named Edna with three kids. She asks me how I'm doing. When I don't say "fine", she sticks around to hear my problems. She's lived in the city most of her life, but she knows about community. Community isn't so much a place as it is a state of mind. You find it whenever people ask how you're doing because they care, and not because they're getting paid to do so. Sometimes it's good to just smile, nod your head and listen.

How to Remember What You Read
Reading is important. But the next step is making sure that you remember what you've read! __31__ you may have just read the text. But the ideas, concepts and images（形象）may fly right out of your head. Here are a few tricks for remembering what you read.
If the plot, characters, or word usage is confusing for you, you likely won't be able to remember what you read. It's a bit like reading a foreign language. If you don't understand what you're reading, how would you remember it? But there are a few things you can do... Use a dictionary; look up the difficult words.
●Are you connected?
Does a character remind you of a friend? Does the setting make you want to visit the place? Does the book inspire you, and make you want to read more? With some books, you may feel a connection right away. 33___ How willing are you to make the connections happen?
●Read it; hear it; be it!
Read the lines. Then, speak them out loud. And, put some character into the words. When he was writing his novels, Charles Dickens would act out the parts of the characters. He'd make faces in the mirror, and change his voice for each character. 34
●How often do you read?
If you read frequently, you'll likely have an easier time with remembering what you’re reading and what you've read. 35 As you make reading a regular part of your life, you'll make more connections, stay more focused and understand the text better. You’ll learn to enjoy literature----as you remember what you read!
A. Are you confused?
B. Practice makes perfect.
C. What's your motivation?
D. Memory is sometimes a tricky thing.
E. Marking helps you remember what you read.
F. But other books require a bit more work on your part.
G. You can do the same thing when you are reading the text!
Easy Ways to Build Vocabulary
It's not all that hard to build an advanced and large vocabulary. Like many things in life, it's 36__ ongoing process, and the best part of the process is that there's enough room for improvement, 37__ means you'll just keep getting better and better. Of course you have to work at it. You wouldn't think that a few 38 (month) of exercise in your teens would be enough 39 the rest of your life, and that's also true for building your vocabulary----you have to keep at it daily, and pretty soon you will find that you have an excellent vocabulary.
One of the 40 (effect) ways to build vocabulary is to read good books. You need to 41 (real) read at least one good book a week, preferably a classic. This isn't as hard as it 42 (sound), and it is far better than any other method because you improve your vocabulary while 43 (read) an interesting piece of literature. Another nice thing is that you learn both new words and 44 (they) use unconsciously, meaning that you will tend to use the words 45 (learn) this way in conversations almost automatically.

Last week, we went on a trip to a big zoo. It was like an amazed African rain forest. We saw many kinds of animals, waterfalls, and beautiful plant. To our surprise, we heard about a recording of the sounds of a real rain forest. We also watched some gorillas (大猩猩) playing nearby the waterfall.
I liked the gorillas, but I liked the bears even best. We looked through a big window and saw that some bears are swimming in the cold water. Our guide told them many interesting facts about those bears. As we watched those animals, the huge bear swam right up to the glasses. I will never forget the moment I came face to face the animal.
