To read extensivelyorto read intensively
Bathed in so many worthy books, every one is faced with the option of reading method. Some think that we should read extensively. It is their conviction that, reading extensively could easily enlarge knowledge, widen interests and enrich lives.
On the other hand, with the sharp increase in information today, we are not allowed to read word by word. It seems an impossible mission to accomplish digesting carefully every material. Therefore, what we need nowadays is to read extensively.
However, some people, on the contrary, hold the opposite point of view. In their eyes, we benefit much more from reading intensively. Only by following every word are we able to comprehend the hidden meanings. Besides, without intensive reading, we are likely to miss a good many wonderful expressions, thoughtful words and even truths. Thus, they suggest chewing a book mouth by mouth rather than simply swallowing it at a time.
As far as I am concerned, we ought to learn to read extensively as well as intensively. It is not often possible, to read in merely one way. Instead of trying to read every line and word in newspapers and magazine, wed better summarize the main idea. And when it comes to literature, art, science articles and others like these; it is wise to read them intensively
