    A man who failed to return more than 700 children’s books to five different libraries in the county was put into prison. Yesterday he was set free after a book publisher agreed to post his bond (担保金) of $1,000. The publisher said, “There’s a story here. This is a man who loves books. He just can’t let go of them. He hasn’t stolen a single book. So what’s the crime? We think that Mr. Brush has a story to tell. We plan to publish his story.”

    When asked why he didn’t return the books, Mr. Brush said, “Well, how could I? They became friends to me. I was afraid to return them, because I knew that kids or dogs would get hold of these books and chew them up, throw them around, rip the pages, spill soda on them, get jam and jelly on them, and drown them in the toilet.”

    He continued, “Books are people, too! They talk to you, they take care of you, and they enrich you with wisdom and humor and love. A book is my guest in my home. How could I kick it out? I repaired torn pages. I dusted them. I turned their pages so they could breathe and get some fresh air.

    “Every week I reorganized them on their shelves so they could meet new friends. My books were HAPPY books. You could tell just by looking at them. Now they’re all back in the library, on the lower shelves, on the floors, at the mercy of all those runny-nosed kids. I can hear them calling me! I need to rescue them. Excuse me. I have to go now.”

    21. Why was the man put into prison?

    A. Because he refused to return the books that he had borrowed.

    B. Because the book publisher persuaded the police to do so.

    C. Because he stole 700 children's books from the five different libraries.

    D. Because he wanted to publish his story.

    22. How did the man treat books?

    A. He treated them as his furniture.                      B. He treated them as his own children.

    C. He treated them as real people.                        D. He treated them as his job.

    23. From the passage we can learn that the man is _____.

    A. a thief                B. crazy about books           C. a writer                   D. unfortunate

    24. What might happen after the man was set free?

    B. He might start a library of his own.

    C. He might go on borrowing books from libraries.

    Ammie Reddick from East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, was only 18 months old when she had the accident that had scarred(留下创伤) her for life. The curious child reached up to grab the wire of a hot kettle in the family kitchen and poured boiling water over her tiny infant frame.

    Her mother Ruby turned round and, seeing Ammie horribly burnt, called an ambulance which rushed her daughter to a nearby hospital. Twenty percent of Ammie’s body had been burned and all of her burns were third-degree. There, using tissue(组织) taken from unburned areas of Ammie’s body, doctors performed complex skin transplants(移植) to close her wounds and control her injuries, an operation that took about six hours. Over the next 16 years, Ammie underwent 12 more operations to repair her body.

    When she started school at Maxwelton Primary at age 4, other pupils made cruel comments or simply wouldn’t play with her. “I was the only burned child in the street, the class and the school,” she recalled, “some children refused to become friends because of that.”

    Today, aged 17, Ammie can only ever remember being a burned person with scars; pain is a permanent part of her body. She still has to have two further skin transplants. Yet she is a confident, outgoing teenager who offers inspiration and hope to other young burns victims.

    She is a member of the Scottish Burned Children’s Club, a charity set up last year. This month, Ammie will be joining the younger children at the Graffham Water Center in Cambridge shire for the charity’s first summer camp. “I’ll show them how to get rid of unkind stares from others,” she says. Ammie loves wearing fashionable sleeveless tops, and she plans to show the youngsters at the summer camp that they can too. “I do not go to great lengths to hide my burns scars,” she says, “I gave up wondering how other people would react years ago.”

    28. What did other children do when Ammie first went to school?

    AThey were friendly to her.                 BThey showed sympathy to her.

    CThey were afraid of her.                   DThey looked down upon her.

    29. Ammie will teach the younger children at the Graffham Water Center to___________.

    Aface others’ unkindness bravely          Bhide their scars by proper dressing

    Clive a normal life                             Drecover quickly

    30. What does the underlined word “permanent” in the 4th paragraph mean?

    A. necessary          B. life-long         C. difficult       D. important

    31. What can be the best title of the passage?

    AA Seriously Burned Girl Survives             BWays to Get Rid of Unkind Stares

    CPermanent Scars And Pain For a Girl         DA seriously burned angel of Hope

    Attitudes to AIDS Now

      Most people say that the USA is making progress in fighting AIDS, but they don't know there's no cure and strongly disagree that "the AIDS epidemic(传染病) is over," a new survey finds.
      The findings, released Thursday by the Kaiser Family Foundation, reassure activists who have worried that public concern about AIDS might disappear in light of recent news about advances in treatment and declines in deaths.
      "While people are very optimistic about the advances, they're still realistic about the fact that there is no cure" says Sophia Chang, director of HIV programs at the foundation.
      The Kaiser survey, like a recent USA TODAY Gallup Poll, does find that the number of people ranking AIDS as the country's top health problem has fallen. In the Kaiser Poll, 38% say it's the top concern, down from 44% in a 1996 poll; in the Gallup Poll, 29% say AIDS is No.1, down from 41% in 1992 and 67% in 1987.
      Other findings from Kaiser, which polled more than 1,200 adults in September and October and asked additional questions of another 1,000 adults in November:
      52% say the country is making progress against AIDS, up from 32% in 1995.51% say the government spends too little on AIDS. 86% correctly say AIDS drugs can now lengthen lives; an equal number correctly say that the drugs are not cures.67% incorrectly say that AIDS deaths increased or stayed the same in the past year; 24% know deaths fell. Daniel Zingale, director of AIDS Action Council, says, "I'm encouraged that the American people are getting the message that the AIDS epidemic isn't over. I hope the decision-makers in Washington are getting the same message … We have seen signs of complacency.

    32. What do activists worry about?
      A. Recent news about AIDS is not true.         B. Advances in AIDS treatment are too slow.

      C. Deaths caused by AIDS may not decline.      D. People may stop worrying about AIDS

    33. According to the passage, people's attitude toward the cure of AIDS is
      A. optimistic.        B. hopeless          C. pessimistic.          D. realistic

    34. The Gallup Poll shows that the number of people___________.

      A. who suffer from the worst disease -- AIDS has fallen.
      B. who think AIDS is the country's top health killer has fallen.

      C. who worry about AIDS and health problems has fallen.
      D. who think AIDS threatens the countryside has fallen.

    35. According to the Kaiser Poll, which of the following is NOT Correct?
      A. The country is making progress against AIDS. 

    B. More and more people die of AIDS now.

      C. AIDS drugs can now make people live longer. 

    D. AIDS drugs still cannot save people's lives.

    How to Improve Vocabulary Fast

         Your vocabulary refers to the words in a language you are familiar with. We should learn some ways to expand it.

         Read every day.  36  . Choose reading material that is slightly above your level and keep a dictionary with you to look up words you do not know.

             37   . If you do not meet with an unfamiliar word in your daily reading, use your dictionary to search for one.

         Learn the correct definition and pronunciation for each new word. Pronunciation is as important as definition because in order to add a word to your active vocabulary, you must be able to use it in speech.

         Elaborate(详尽阐述)on the meaning of the word. If you have just learned that the word “stubborn” , think about the neighbor who will not lend you his car.   38 

         Use your new word in speech and in writing. E-mail your sister about how your cat is stubborn about sleeping on your pillow.   39   But the more you use it, the more fluent you will become in its use. Soon it will be a regular part of your active vocabulary.

         Tell everyone you are trying to increase your vocabulary. Encourage them to ask you what your latest word is.  40  . The more you explain the meaning of a word to someone, the more likely you are to remember it.

     A. Find a new word every day.

     B. The vocabulary can be increased.

     C. Your vocabulary contains the words you understand.

     D. The more often you read, the faster your vocabulary can grow.

     E. Or let them ask for the definition of a new word you have used.

     F. Imagine him shaking his head, and think of him as “stubborn in his refusal”.

     G. The first time you use a new word in speech it may seem strange.
