Welcome to my Message Board!
Subject: Slimming down（缩编）classics? Orion Books, which decides there is a market in creating cut-down classics（经典著作）, is slimming down some novels by such great writers as L. Tolstoy, M. Mitchell and C. Bronte. Now, each of them has been cut down to about 400 pages by Mr. Handsome 2008-5-12 6: 34 AM cutting 30 to 40 pages percent of original, with words, sentences, paragraphs and, in a few cases, chapters removed. The first six shortened editions, all priced at ￡6.99 and advertised as great reads “in half the time”, will go on sale next month, with plans for 50 to 100 more to follow. The publishing house believes that modern readers will welcome the shorter versions. Well, I’m publisher of Orion Group. Thanks for your attention, Mr. Handsome. I must say, the idea developed from a game of “shame” in my Mr. Edwards 2008-5-12 9: 40 AM office. Each of us was required to confess（承认）to the most embarrassing blanks in his or her reading. I admitted that I had never read Anna Karenina and tried but failed to get through Gone with the Wind several times. One of my colleagues acknowledged skipping（跳读）Jane Eyre. We realized that life is too short to read all the books you want to and we never
were going to read these ones. As a leading publishing house, we are trying to make classics convenient for readers but it’s not as if we’re withdrawing the original versions. They are still there if you want to read them. I’m director of the online book club www.lovereading.co.uk. Mr. Edwards, I think your shortened edition is a breath of Ms. Weir fresh air. I’m guilty of never having read Anna Karenina, 2008-5-12 because it’s just so long. I’d much rather read two 300-page 11:35 AM books than one 600-page book. I am looking forward to more shortened classics! I’m from the London independent bookshop Corckatt & Powell. In my opinion, the practice is completely ridiculous. How can Mr. Crockatt 2008-5-12 4:38 PM you edit the classics? I’m afraid reading some of these books is hard work, and that is why you have to develop as a reader. If people don’t have time to read Anna Karenina, then fine. But don’t read a shortened version and kid yourself it’s the real thing. 56. According to the message board, Orion Books A. opposes the reading of original classics B. is embarrassed for cutting down classics C. thinks cut-down classics have a bright future D. is cautions in its decision to cut down classics 57. In Mr. Edwards’ opinion, Orion Group is shortening classics to A. meet a large demand in the market C. increase the sales of literary books original versions 58. By describing the shortened classics as “a breath of fresh air”, Ms. Weir . B. make them easier to read D. compete with their . .
A. speaks highly of the cut-down classics classics C. feels guilty of not reading the classics the classics 59. Mr. Crockatt seems to imply that
B. shows her love for original
D. disapprove of shortening
A. reading the classic works is a confusing attempt B. shortening the classics does harm to the original C. publishing the cut-down classics is a difficult job D. editing the classic works satisfies children’s needs 60. How many classics are involved in the massage board? A. Two. B. Five. C. Four. B Suppose that you, a college student of somewhat limited means, are in the market for a used pickup truck. The following ad in a local used car publication catches your eyes. 1993 Ford Ranger, bilk, 4WD,a/c, AM/FM/cass., showroom condition. Call 555-1234 after 5 p.m. This is exactly the kind of vehicle you want, so you call to ask the price. The price you have mentioned over the phone is $2,000 lower than the Price for this model with this equipment listed in a used car guidebook. Instead of being ecstatic (happy), however, you are suspicious (怀疑的). For many products, when you must pay less than the going rate, you believe you are getting a great deal. This is not necessarily the case for used cars or other durable goods (washing machines and television sets, for example) because with expensive products—or, what is essentially the same thing, products with high replacement costs—you must be particularly careful about getting a “lemon (柠 檬),” or a product of substandard（低于标准）quality. In addition to asking the price, the age of a car —or any other consumer durable—is a factor when you are trying to determine whether a seller is attempting
to unload a lemon. While people hold off until they have put many thousands of a car that is “too new” as you would have a car that is “too good” a deal. In fact, you are probably willing to pay a high for a high quality used car. While this price would certainly be acceptable to the seller, the competitive market might not facilitate such trades. 61. The beginning of this passage suggests that college students A. are very clever but not very rich B. are very capable but not very hard-working C. have limited material resources D. are not rich 62. The passage indicates that sometimes when you find a product of an unexpectedly low price, A. you are very happy suspicious C. you feel uneasy filled with happiness as well as surprise 63. “Lemon” in this passage refers to A. fruit B. a kind of new car C. a kind of expensive and high-quality car quality (劣质) 64. It can be concluded from the passage that in the used car market, A. used cars are generally cheap B. used cars are actually expensive C. used cars are actually brand new D. car buyers are willing to pay a high price for a used car C American Watersports Tuesday--Saturday
B. you are rather
D. you are
. kind of
D. a product of inferior
