A Message From Our CEO Otis Chandler
When I was in second grade, I discovered the Hardy Boys series. Ever since, I’ve loved to read—both for fun and to improve my mind. And I’m always looking for the next great book.
One afternoon while I was scanning a friend’s bookshelf for ideas, it struck me: when I want to know what books to read, I’d rather turn to a friend than any random person or best-seller list.
So I decided to build a website a place where I could see my friends’ bookshelves and learn about what they thought of all their books. I started in my living room, motivated by the belief that there was a better way to discover and discuss good books, and that I could build it.
Goodreads is that site. You can create“bookshelves’ to organize what you’ve read or want to read , comment on each other’ s reviews and find your next favorite book. And on this journey with your friends you can expand your mind.
Knowledge is power, and power is best shared among readers.

During the First World War, my dad left his homeland of Japan for the USA. At that time, Japan was growing more and more militaristic(军国主义的)and many people were forced to join the army. My father didn’t want that to happen to him. The l ISA was an unsafe country to move to, but Dad thought it’ d be a better place.
As Dad began his new life in the States, he remembered a nurse named Takeko—my mother—whom he’d met in Japan. He went back for her. Unfortunately, after his new bride failed an immigration health test because of a suspected illness, Dad had to leave her behind. Mom was trapped in Yokohama. After being cleared by immigration, she took the next ship to America.
They settled in Seattle, where Dad bought a truck to sell fresh vegetables and fruits. Years later, he decided to buy a grocery store to support his wife and three daughters. Before Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Mom and Dad moved the family back to Japan for safety.
Life in Tokyo during World War II( WWII )was very hard. There was a lot of bombing. I worked for a Japanese publishing company that hired American-born people w ho could type. My father predicted there would be a food shortage , but as he was a clerk in the government in charge of distributing food , we were able to stay fed.
After the war ended, US Gen. Douglas MacArthur ruled Japan. It was common for American soldiers to marry Japanese girls then, but my future husband George wanted to get married back in the US.

No matter the nature of your business ，having a solid marketing plan behind you is necessary. If you fail to advertise your product and service effectively, it’ll be difficult for your business to succeed. Understanding what makes a particular advertisement effective allows you to make your ow n marketing plans and achieve better results.
To be effective , an advertisement has to be memorable for the viewer. If the viewer doesn’t remember the ad after viewing it, the company sponsoring the ad is simply wasting time and their money. With an effective advertisement, the viewer should be able to clearly remember what happened during the course of the ad, and more importantly, which product is being advertised.
A big part of developing an effective advertising campaign is knowing exactly who your target audience is. Chances are the product or service you offer won’t appeal to everyone, so it’ s important to identify the part of the population most likely to need what you have to offer. Identifying your target audience also helps you decide which television programs, radio stations and other advertising places are likely to be the most effective.
An effective ad will inform the consumer about the product or service you have to offer, but that advertisement also needs to entertain the potential buyer. The more entertaining you can make that ad, the more effective it can be. If it’ s appropriate, try to use humor in your ad, since it helps to catch and hold the attention of the viewer or listener.
No matter how good your ad may be, it’ll do your company no good if no one sees it. An effective advertisement needs to win the interest and attention of the viewer. Getting the attention of those potential customers is necessary , so it pays to test several different designs and choose the one that is the most eye-catching.
28. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. The Qualities of a Good Advertisement
B. The Importance of a Good Advertisement
C. The Process of Making an Advertisement
D. The Benefits of a Good Advertisement
29. According to the text, an effective ad enables the viewer to .
A. be addicted to it
B. make a wise choice
C. offer to be its sponsor
D. keep its contents in mind
30. What should advertisers do in their advertising campaign?
A. Always be serious.
B. Try not to be entertaining.
C. Prepare various ad designs.
D. Target no fixed audience group.
31. How is the text mainly developed?
A. By drawing conclusions.
B. By making explanations.
C. By listing examples.
D. By making comparisons.
Every day a robotic rover(探测车)about the size of a small car wakes up and makes its next move across the surface of Mars. It’s called the Curiosity Mars Science Laboratory rover, exploring around Mount Sharp on the Red Planet.
Each year, Curiosity’s science team celebrates another full Martian year of exploration, and Curiosity has been doing its job since August 6, 2012. It has been a significant time, revealing new information about Earth’ s neighbor in the solar system. Scientists are interested in conditions on the planet, particularly its ability to support life.
One of the most important questions is: What’ s the history of water on Mars? Curiosity’ s instruments and cameras were designed to help answer that.
One of Curiosity’s first discoveries was an ancient riverbed running beneath the rover’ s landing site. At an area known as Yellowknife Bay, the rover dug into two blocks of mudstone and studied samples(样品). The idea was to search for zones appropriate for simple life forms to live in. Analysis of the mudstone samples showed that they were once at the bottom of a lake filled with water rich in nutrients. That’ s the kind of place where life could have formed and developed on the early Earth. If Mars had living organisms, this would have been a good home for them as well.
One question that keeps coming up is: If Mars had a lot of water in the past, where did it all go?The answers differ greatly, from frozen underground reservoirs to the ice caps. Studies by the MAVEN spacecraft orbiting the planet strongly support the idea that some water loss to space occurred. This changed the planet’ s climate. Curiosity has measured various gases in the Martian atmosphere and has helped Mars scientists figure out that much of the early atmosphere escaped to space. More recent studies have found underground ice on Mars, and possibly salty water just beneath the surface in some areas.
32. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word “revealing”in paragraph 2?
B. making known
A. putting together
D. throwing doubt on
C. giving proof about
33. Why did Curiosity dig for mudstone samples?
A. To check if ancient riverbeds exist on Mars.
B. To determine whether Mars is similar to Earth.
C. To look for areas suitable for simple life forms.
D. To find out the nutrients contained in mudstone.
34. W hat can we learn about Curiosity?
A. It supports life on Mars.
B. It can measure Martian gases.
C. It works around the clock.
D. It landed on Mars 10 years ago.
35. What can be inferred from the last paragraph?
A. It isn’t agreed where the water on Mars went.
B. Water loss had little effect on Martian climate.
C. Underground water has already been found on Mars.
D. Water resource on Mars exists in the form of salty water.
