    The Price of a Dream

    I grew up poor, living with my wonderful mother. We had little money but plenty of love and attention.  I was   36   and energetic. I understood that no matter how poor a person was, he could still   37   a dream.

    My dream was to be a sportsman.   38   I was sixteen, I had started playing baseball. I could throw a ninety-mile-per-hour fastball and hit anything that moved on the football field.  I was also   39  : My high-school coach was Ollie Jarvis, who not only believed in me, but taught me  40  to believe in myself.  He   41   me the difference between having a dream and realizing the dream. One particular   42   with Coach Jarvis changed my life forever.

    It was the summer between my junior and senior years, and a friend recommended (推荐) me for a summer job. This meant a chance for money in my pocket—money for a new bike and new clothes, and the   43   of savings for a house for my mother. Then I realized I would have to   44   summer baseball to deal with the work schedule, and that meant I would have to tell Coach Jarvis I wouldn’t be playing. 

    When I told Coach Jarvis, he was as   45   as I expected him to be.  “You have your whole life to work,” he said.  “Your playing days are limited. You can’t   46   to waste them.” I stood before him with my head hanging, trying to think of the   47   that would explain   48   him why my dream of buying my mom a house and having money in my pocket was worth facing his   49   in me.

    “How much are you going to make at this job, son?” he asked. “Three twenty-five an hour,” I replied.

    “Well,” he asked, “is $3.25 an hour the   50   of a dream?”

    That simple question made it   51   to me the difference between   52   something right now and following a dream. I   53   myself to sports that summer, and within the year I was   54   by the Pittsburgh Pirates to play baseball, and was   55   a $20,000 contract. In 2000, I bought my mother the house of my dream!

    CHICAGO --Bill Clinton's eagerly awaited memoir(自传), My Life, will be published this June, and is sure to ignite(点燃)a firestorm of interest in an already politically charged election year. Bill Clinton said that most presidential memoirs are thought to be "dull and self-serving, but I hope mine is interesting and self-serving.”

    My Life, which is being published by Knopf and will sell for $ 35, is expected by many industry watchers to rise to the top of the best-seller lists.

    Clinton said the book tells the story of his life from his birth and childhood in Arkansas to his years in the White House. From the book readers can have a look at his successes and setbacks.

    He tells the story “as it happens to me, so you see what it's like to be president ... to see how everything happens at once.”

    Without offering specifics or mentioning Monica Lewinsky, Clinton said, "I don't spare myself" in the book.

    "I have no idea if this is a great book," he said, "but it's a pretty good story. "

    Clinton was reportedly paid an advance of $10 million for the book, which was supposed to be done a year ago.

    "The minute that book goes on sale, people will be lined up buying the book," said Bob Wietrak, a vice-president(副总统)and chief merchant for Barnes & Noble.

    Some predict the 957-page book will be one of the few presidential memoirs to fly off shelves.

    Booksellers have already taken pre-orders. The 1.5 million-copy first printing is bigger than the first run for Hillary Clinton's memoir Living History, which sold 1.8 million copies.

    56. Which of the following statements is NOT true about the book My Life?

    A. It will come out in June.  B. It has 957 pages in all.

    C. It is priced at $ 35.  D. It will be published by Barnes & Noble

    57. Readers will not find much information about        in the book.

    A. Clinton's childhood  B. Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky

    C. Clinton's political life   D. Clinton’s presidential election

    58. The underlined word "setback" means              .

    A. a change from worse to better   B. a change from better to worse

    C. a change from worse to worst          D. a change better to best

    59. What can we learn about the sale of book?

    A. The whole printing will be bigger than that of Hillary Clinton's Living History

    B. Some booksellers have placed orders beforehand.

    C. The book will be taken off the shelves after it meets failure.

    D. People have to place an order for the book before it comes out.

    Robert Frost was one of America’s best known and most honored serious writers. But his fame came late in his life.

    He was born in San Francisco, California in 1874. He lived in California during his early  childhood. He was named after the chief Southern general in America’s Civil War. The general’s name was Robert Edward Lee. The poet was named Robert Lee Frost, because his father wanted to honor the general.

        Someone once asked another American writer, Ernest Hemingway, how to become a writer. The best thing, he said, was to have an unhappy childhood. If this is true, Robert Frost’s childhood was unhappy enough to make him a very good writer. Robert Frost’s father was a reporter who wanted to be a politician. He often drank too much wine and became angry. Robert was the victim (受害者) of his anger.

        Robert Frost finished high school in 1891. After high school, Robert’s grandfather offered to pay his costs at Dartmouth College. But Robert left the school after a few months. He did not like it. He spent the next few years working at different jobs. At one time, he worked in a factory. Later, he repaired shoes. He was a teacher. He was a reporter. Always, he wrote poetry.

        Robert Frost attended Harvard University for two years. After that, he returned to the many jobs  he held before. For a while, Frost tried to take care of a farm in the state of New Hampshire. He was not a successful farmer. And he continued to write poetry. He said that until 1930, he earned only about ten dollars a year from writing.

        In 1912, he decided to try to make a new start. He took his family to Britain. The cost of living was low. In Britain, Frost found a publisher for his first book of poems. The book was called A Boy’s Will. When it appeared in 1913. Frost received high praise from British readers. Praise was something he had not received in his own country.

        Ezra Pound, another American poet living in Britain, read the poems and liked them very much. He wrote a magazine article about Frost. He also helped get Frost’s second book of poems published in America. That book was called North of Boston.

    Taylor sings with heart

    The music industry is never short of teen pop stars with wonderful looks, but it doesn’t often find one like US singer Taylor Swift. “Beneath Taylor Swift’s not-a-girl, not-yet-a-woman sweetness hides a very skillful songwriting technique (技巧),” writes Leah Greenblatt with Entertainment Weekly.

    Songwriting, the country singer explains, is “how I deal with problems. I am used to writing about things that really influences me most.” So in her songs, there is always something true and honest. They seem like stories from a diary. And that certainly helps Swift attract her audience.

    She’s sold more than 13 million copies worldwide of her first two albums, 2006’s self-titled debut (首张专辑) and 2008’s Fearless. She’s the youngest artist ever to be named Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards. Not surprisingly, there were great expectations for her third album, Speak Now, which came out late last month, where she again returned to her own life for material. The 14 songs “are all about the last two years... when life was a little bit bigger and crazier,” says Swift. “So I’ve written about the lessons and confusion and heartbreak and all the different things that go along with being 18, 19 and 20.”

    64..What led to Taylor’s fame?

    A. Her wonderful looks.               

    B. Her songwriting skills together with her looks.

    C. Her beautiful voice.                 

    D. Her special life experience in her teenage years.

    65.Which of the following is true?

    A. Taylor is now in her twenties.

    B. Taylor’s the youngest Artist of the Year at the Academy Awards

    C. Taylor has produced three albums up till now.

    D. Taylor has sold more than 13 million copies worldwide so far.

    66.What may be written in the album, Speak Now?

    A. Her unhappy experience with her boyfriend.

    B. Her concern for her popularity.

    C. Her happy childhood.

    D. Her worries for environmental pollution.
