A beautiful and very successful actress was the star for a new musical show. Her home was in the country, but she didn’t want to go back there every night, so she bought an expensive house in the center of the city, got some beautiful furniture and got a man to paint the rooms in new colour.
It was very difficult to get tickets for her show in the evening, because everyone wanted to see it. So she decided to give the painter two of the best seats. S he hoped that this would make him work better for her. He took the tickets without saying anything, and she heard no more about them until the end of month, when she got the painter’s bill. At the bottom of it were these words: “Four hours from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. watching Miss Hall sing and dance: 3 pounds,” with this note: “Before 5:00 p.m. I get 10 shillings (先令)an hour and after 5:00 p.m. 15 shillings.”

Dear Li Ming,
I’d like to know what you often do in your free time. Do you spend much time on reading? What do you think about reading?
I like reading novels (小说) very much. My favourite book is Jane Eyre. It was written by Charlotte Bronte. She was born in Britain. She was a famous writer in the world. She wrote many books and Jane Eyre was one of the best. In this book, she wrote about a woman named Jane Eyre. Jane Eyre wasn’t pretty, but she had a strong idea of self-respect (自尊心). She never gave up whenever she met any difficulties in her life. I was deeply moved by her story. I like the book very much.
It’s very nice to hear that you like r eading a lot.

It’s very nice to hear that you like reading a lot. It seems that we have the same hobby. I enjoy reading as well. In my free time, I usually spend one hour or more in reading, such as novels, newspapers, plays and so on. One of my favourite books is Romeo and Juliet. It is one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays and he wrote it in 1595. The play tells the story of two young lovers. They cannot be together because of the two families. The two lovers die at the end of the play. Although it is a sad story, I still like it because it tells us what the true love is. I advise you to read it if you haven’t read it before. In my opinion, reading is an excellent hobby. It can bring us enjoyment and success. It can also make us grow as a person, develop our interest and help us learn more knowledge.
