Where Adichie spoke broadly about the cultural and political importance of a diverse and representative library of international voices, Flanagan asserted the vital role Australian literature has played in forging our own cultural identity and voice. But, at precisely the time when Australia is one of the most productive and exciting centres of publishing in the world, we risk dismantling the very platform that allowed our writers and publishers to finally escape the colonial shadow of Britain and stand alone on the international stage. Territorial Copyright is the legal ground on which the platform of Australian Literature has been built—and from which it risks being undermined.
Coolart Are you try to say that reading doesn't do anything for anyone? I get that your trying to say that someone can be open minded despite never reading a book but you're also saying that reading doesn't do anything.
In my opinion reading should be highly valued because of how they affect you emotionally, can further your understanding of others, and bring knowledge to your attention. The girl who wrote this probably shouldn't have written from a "this will happen if you date a girl who reads" standpoint but instead a "this could happen" stand point.
Arguably the most famous book ever written: Does it not give people the opportunity to become open to the thought of a higher power? UncleRayRay Coolart You missed his point. He isn't bashing reading, he is saying just because a person reads does not guarantee they will be a better or more open minded person.
The OP made some baseless claims that a girl who reads is somehow inherently better than a girl who does not read regularly which is not necessarily true, though it may be in some cases. No doubt reading is a path to learning, however it is on the individual to internalize and use what they read.
For instance what if the girl is only really into reading French poetry or something. If she likes it good for her but so what if she can quote maybe a few lines, big whoop. Doesn't make her entertaining or even interesting, and certainly doesn't impart direct real world usable knowledge over say a survival manual or investing book.
I am an avid reader and no I don't find myself any cooler. I read roughly books a week when I have to work and I can blast 5 books a day when I don't work. The Author of the take was speaking in absolutes and I was merely saying that they weren't true.
The fact that someone reads does not make them an open minded person; there are plenty of people that are brainwashed and indoctrinated by things that they've read and that alone is pretty compelling evidence that that statement is a fact.
I didn't once say "this will never happen" nor did I say that reading doesn't do anything, I said that it doesn't make you a better person. And to answer your question, I read because I enjoy doing so.
Which is pain out not true. You both are guilty of committing the same fallacy, a hasty generalization. Both assumed that because of either your own experience as a reader or from knowing a few other readers, that everyone else has had the same experience.
Neither of you thought in your argument that it was possible that even just one person to have a different experience. Therefore Neither argument is valid. Also reading can not will make you more imaginative. So to use Harry Potter as an example, your saying that a school for wizards won't open up your imagination.Worldshaker Extract 1 Essay.
