Aleksandra Posted May 7, 2009 Share Posted May 7, 2009 * Reading is the cognitive process of deriving meaning from written or printed text. It is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Effective readers use decoding skills (to translate printed text into the sounds of language), use morpheme, semantics, syntax and context cues to identify the meaning of unknown words, activate prior knowledge (schemata theory), use comprehension, and demonstrate fluency during reading. Although reading print text is now an important way for the general population to access information, this has not always been the case. With some exceptions, only a small percentage of the population in many countries were considered literate before the Industrial Revolution. * passage form wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reading_ _____________________ I love to read. Sometimes I read more and sometimes less. Now because of the conditions what I have with my computer, I read more on-line, and that is what I don't like. But also because of my education I need to read from some old books where the text is " deadly " but I love when I read these subjects. For now I read some stuffs from Phylosophy of the Low, but also I read poetry too. I have poetry book by James Wright sent by Tony ( Tony dear, thank you for the books ) and also the best 100 love sonnets by Neruda , - lovely books. So it is good to read I want here to share what we read and are we read . And sure we can share some good titles and suggestions for some good and worth book and our thoughts about book in common. Thank you for reading and I hope we will have good start here again, and we all together can make again new good poetry site.
