예문: I’m not really a big reader. I find books quite heavy-going. so I much prefer to see a film . Perhaps it’s the special effects or the soundtrack. I just prefer a film.
예문2: I like reading, especially English novels. It’s a great way to improve your vocabulary and there are so many fantastic authors to choose from. One book that came highly recommended by my teacher was The Mayor of Casterbridge. Well I have to say I absolutely loved it. It was a real page-turner. It’s a historical novel and the setting was a fictional town called Casterbridge. It had such a great plot. I really couldn’t put it down.
