范文1  Reading Selectively or Extensively?

Once famous English philosopher Francis Bacon said, "Reading makes a full man", which means that anyone who wants to be a full man must keep on reading. But books are of various kinds and different contents. Then how to read?

Some people say that we should read selectively. They believe that it is not how much one reads but what he reads that really counts. Since we have no enough time to read all kinds of books, we should read selectively to achieve a high efficiency, reading only those that are useful to our majors and future works. Only by this way can we make full use of our time, and gain more practical knowledge.

However, others claim that reading extensively is a better choice.In their opinions, different books are of different uses. Just like Bacon mentioned, "Histories make men wise;poets witty;the mathematics subtle; natural philosophy deep; moral grave; logic and rhetoric able to content." Therefore, reading widely is necessary for a full man.

In my viewpoint, we should read both selectively and extensively. The two reading ways have their respective roles in our reading. We can read selectively for specialized knowledge, or read widely for general information.Therefore, the combination of the two methods is more reasonable.

范文2 Reading Selectively or Extensively?

As the source of knowledge, books play an important role in our life. They not only make a full man, but also promote the development of society. However, among so many books in the world, should we read selectively or extensively?

Some people hold that we should read selectively. To begin with, life is limited, and it is impossible for us to read all kinds of books. Second, not all the books can benefit us. Some kinds of books,such as cartoon books, popular novels and magazines only can entertain us and make us feel relaxed in our spare time. Third, everyone has special interest, so while reading we could select different books according to our personal interests.

However, some believe otherwise. They maintain that in modern society, people are supposed to have more knowledge than their ancestors to cope with tougher problems. Besides, the society is developing faster and faster, if we confine our knowledge only to our major or our study field, we couldn't keep up with the changes around us. Even we may feel puzzled about what is happening in this modern world. So some people suggest we read extensively so as to get much more knowledge and not to become a person like Rip Van Winkle.

As far as I'm concerned, I think we'd better read both selectively and extensively. Thus, we can not only become a knowledgeable person in our own field, but also become a well-informed and qualified modern man.
