Horace Mann once noted, A house without books is like a
room without windows. However, some people seem to have
forgotten the importance of reading and claim that it is just a
waste of time. Let us examine this issue in details.
My personal view is that reading plays an important role in
the life of people. Firstly, books are a great source of information,
inspiration, knowledge and enlightenment. Secondly, they help us
to enrich vocabulary and make our speech more emotional and
expressive. Thirdly, books are our best teachers. They help to
find answers to disturbing questions and to discover a way out.
Furthermore, books help us to be thoughtful, responsive, friendly,
merciful and kind-hearted, that is how to become a better person.

On the other hand, the opinion of reading is useless has


become common in our society nowadays. The reason of it is
that more and people use the Internet. They claim that reading
online is timesaving because you do not have to read the whole
book or to go to the library.
Personally, I think that the Internet is not a reliable source of
information. It often happens that some sources contain mistakes
and untrue information. Besides, reading an extract from a book
will give you superficial knowledge but not a deep understanding
of the matter.
Taking into consideration all mentioned above, reading
books is not a thing of the past. Although we live in a century of
technical progress, books will exist forever. Reading is the best
pastime which makes it possible for people to plunge into the
world of breathtaking events, to escape the reality and to recreate.

Fashion has always played an important role in society.
It helps people to show their sense of style, to be unique and to
stand out in a crowd. Today fashion is a part of any culture. So, is
it so important to follow fashion?
In my judgment, there should be the right balance between
staying on trend and dressing stylish. Firstly, people who know
how to mix and match different items of clothing always look
fashionable. Secondly, it is more important to have a great sense
of style and to wear clothes that suit you than to buy designer
labels. For instance, clothes in classic style are timeless and
never go out of fashion. Furthermore, to follow fashion trends
is necessary in order to keep up with the times.

7. Fashion

On the contrary, there are those who think that fashion is


a waste of time and money. In their opinion, people who spend
money on fashionable clothing are fashion victims. Most of them
live beyond their income and spend money on new clothes in
order to impress others with stylish fashion.
There is a great deal of truth in what they say. However,
there is nothing appalling in being trendy because not all people
become fashion slaves. Those who read fashion magazines or
watch catwalk shows often learn how to knit or to sew and make
trendy outfits with their own hands. It is possible to look attractive
without spending lots of money on clothing.
All in all, I still believe that people should be aware of new
fashion trends but should not follow fashion blindly. To sum up,
fashion is endless possibility of self-expression.
