Варианты ответов к тексту Books in Never Ending Motion
1. The text introduces a reader into such an unusual thing like book-crossing. Book-crossing is a relatively new trend in Belarus. Public libraries appeared as places where people could get books for free. Book-crossing means exchanging books by leaving them in public places. Some people believe that book-crossing is a good way to encourage young people to read. I am not sure about that. If you do want to read something, you will find a way to do so.
2. Librarians are saddened by the fact that young people tend only to borrow reference books rather than reading fiction for pleasure. Perhaps it’s unfashionable to read these days. However, a new trend is developing, with literary lovers leaving their books in public places, to be picked up and ‘borrowed’ by others.
3. It is said that the Director of the BNTU scientific library Alexei Skalaban was the first to introduce book-crossing in Belarus. I have grave doubts that the idea will ever catch on as you can easily download any book.
4. Book-crossing seems to be a great idea as books are available to everyone. «Safe places» can be found in libraries, schools, colleges and universities. In my opinion books shouldn’t be recycled until they are good enough to be read. Book-crossing may give many old books a chance for a longer life.
