IV. Time to Read

Read the story and correct the statements.


...It was May 17, 2157, when Tommy found a real book. It was a very old book. Margie’s grandfather said that when he was a little boy, his grandfather told him that there was a time when the stories were printed on paper. It was awfully funny to read words that stood still instead of working on a screen.

“Gee”, said Tommy, “What a waste! When you finish the book, you just throw it away, I guess. Our television screen must have had a million books on it and it’s good for plenty more. I wouldn’t throw it away”.

“Same with me”, said Margie. She was eleven and hadn’t seen as many telebooks as Tommy had. He was thirteen.

She asked “What is the book about?”


Margie was scornful . “School?” “What’s there to write about school? I hate school.” Margie always hated school, but now she hated it more than ever. The mechanical teacher had been giving her test after test in geography. She had been doing worse and worse until her mother called for the County Inspector who took the teacher with him. Margie had hoped that he wouldn’t know how to put the teacher together again. They had once taken Tommy’s teacher for nearly a month because the history sector was out of order. But the inspector knew all right, and, after an hour or so, there it was again, large and black and ugly, with a big screen on which all the lessons were shown and the questions were asked. That wasn’t so bad. The part Margie hated most was the slot where she had to put homework and test papers. She always had to write them in a punch code, her parents made her when she was six years old and the mechanical teacher calculated the mark in no time.

Adapted from “The Fun They Had” by I. Asimov
