Suppose you are a reader of local newspaper. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper to state your point of view on reading extensively.
I have been reading your newspaper for many years with great enthusiasm and interest. Now I would like to render my own idea on reading extensively.
Nowadays few of us read extensively after we leave school. This tendency is rather disturbing， for one should know that reading extensively are no less necessary to one’s mental life than fresh air to one’s physical life. From reading extensively， we can derive companionship， experience and instruction. First and foremost， a good book is our faithful friend. It can increase our contentment when we are cheerful and happy， and lessen our pain when we are sad or lonely. Furthermore， reading extensively can also offer us a wide range of experiences.
Though with the advent of TV and Internet， books are no longer read as extensively as they once were， nothing can replace the role that reading extensively plays in our lives.
