Almost none of us have the time to read everything we'd like to read. Yet we lose countless hours to daily activities that bring us little joy like taking buses and waiting in line. What if we could turn these little blocks of unoccupied time into precious and rewarding moments for learning and reflection?

Founded in 2012, iReader, a micro-learning app on mobile phones, brings the biggest ideas from best-selling books through 15-minute audio(音频)and text. So far, more than 3,000 books have been included, ranging from psychology and parenting to management and economics, with new titles added every day.

iReader is pioneering a new method of reading, with over 9 million users enjoying the benefits already. According to the Pew Research Center (PRC), the British read just 4 paper books a year and over 25% haven't read a single paper book this year, but reading isn't dying. There are now more ways for the British to read than ever before, due to the widespread use of e-books and audio books.

The books in iReader are rewritten to ensure it is easy to remember the main content. The way the content is edited has been specifically designed to ensure it is useful in practice. Besides, the content is rewritten with relevant examples in real life, which means users are more likely to remember and apply what is helpful to them.

Holger Seim, German co-founder of this app, declares, “iReader gives you the biggest ideas in the shortest possible time. It transforms great ideas into little packs you can listen to or read in just 15 minutes.”

24.What does the author suggest people do in the unoccupied time?

A. Read and think.B. Write and share.

C. Avoid taking buses.D. Bring joy to daily routines.

25.What can we infer from the PRC findings?

A. The British benefit a lot from reading.

B. Reading methods are more important than before.

C. Digital technology is taking the place of paper books.

D. New forms of books are changing the way the British read.

26.How does iReader make the content easy to remember?

A. By bringing fun to it.B. By making it useful.

C. By using artistic designs.D. By taking users as examples.

27.What is the best title for the text?

A. iReader Prevents Reading from Dying

B. iReader Unites Worldwide Book-lovers.

C. iReader.The Best New App Creation

D. iReader.Big Ideas in Small Packages

I visited Elba last June, joining Mary and John on a bicycling vacation. They made the arrangements for the car, hotel and bicycles. I studied the history of the island, which of course particularly features Napoleon.

Napoleon (now I know)picked Elba as a place for peace when he was forced to give up the throne (王权)as Emperor of France in 1814. Far from being a prison island, Elba is beautiful with towering mountains, thick forests and sweeping bays and beaches.

It is also an island filled with treasure. Very early on this island, locals discovered rich deposits of iron. Soon outsiders, too, discovered the iron and 150 other valuable minerals on this little piece of land. Long before Etruscans and other Greeks set foot on it, Dorians had moved in by the tenth century B.C. and were mining the island. The Romans ruled next, obtaining the minerals and building grand houses overlooking the sea. From the twelfth century until the nineteenth, the island was traded back and forth and was passed to France in 1802. Then came Napoleon, the new ruler of Elba.

I was eager to visit his house in Portoferraio. The Emperor lived with his court and his mother, but his wife, Marie Louise had ensconced herself in the splendid Viennese palace of her father, Emperor of Austria. She lived safely there and showed little interest in visiting her husband in his mini-kingdom. Apparently, Napoleon wasn't troubled much by this. He was too busy riding everywhere on horseback, building roads, modernizing agriculture and, above all, sharpening his tiny army and navy into readiness for his escape.

In the formal gardens behind the house it seemed to me that I could imagine the exiled(流放的)conqueror's anxious thoughts. He might gaze over where I stood now, toward the lighthouse of the Stella fort, the sandy bay, and across it, the green mountains of the Tuscan coast. Napoleon spent only ten months here before making his victorious return to France and the throne.

28.What did the author do for the visit to Elba?

A. He did research on its past.B. He arranged transportation.

C. He planned bicycling routes.D. He booked accommodation.

29.Who might be the earliest outsiders to Elba according to the text?

A. Napoleon and his army.B. Etruscans and other Greeks.

C. Dorians D. Romans.

30.What does the underlined word "ensconced"probably mean?

A. Settled B. Locked C. Cured D. Controlled

31.What came to the author's mind during his visit to Napoleon's gardens?

A. Beautiful views on ElbaB. Terrible living conditions on Elba

C. Napoleon's ambition to regain power.

D. Hardship of Napoleon's return to France
