Nevertheless, I have done the job.

Davies has provided a witty piece of literary criticism that informs the reader about avenues of literary bliss they would likely never have heard of anywhere else. I'm not a Canadian, but I didn't feel he dwelt excessively on topics of specific interest to Canadians.

Топик The pleasure of reading. I want to tell you about reading in my life. There are books of different genres: love and detective stories, thrillers and historical novels, tales, works after classical and modern writers. Reading plays a very important role in the life of people. In my opinion, books are a source of emotional inspiration and romantic feelings. Fairy tales are enjoyed and read by children, books about adventures and journeys are enjoyed by those who are fond of travelling. Legends and myths are read by those who are fond of history. I'm a great lover of the English and American literature.
