我们晨读,在阳光微风中,在参天古木下,在碾谷场上,在清香
的花海里。我们在晨曦微露中学习,我们也成了其中最美的风景。正
如荷尔德林诗云:“充满劳绩/然而人诗意地/栖居在这片大地上”。
“一日之计在于晨”,Don't be shy,just try。在大脑最清醒,理
解和记忆的最佳时间晨读英语短文,享受朗读的乐趣,英语学习必然
很有收获。
晨读美文,青春的、时尚的、励志的、有趣的、益智的,全在本书中。
前 言 
学英语你希望读到什么? 
时尚短文? 
幽默故事? 
励志短文? 
经典篇章? 
科技知识? 
凝练的诗歌? 
阅读的愉悦概莫如此。所有能引发阅读兴趣的、好玩的、有趣的、感人的、时尚的、轻
松的、益智的元素在本书中都可以读到。本书针对年轻读者的爱好和兴趣,在编写中突出时

琅上口,编者亦爱不释手。因为我们始终相信:英语学习,兴趣是最好的老师。 
英语专家 Carrell & Eisterhold(19
  84)认为,阅读是读者与所读文章互动的过程,
即读者的背景知识与语篇本身的一种相互作用。这和中国文化所说的“神入”以“化境”有
异曲同工之妙。我们一直认为,学英语只有真正读懂并有所感悟才能很好地掌握和运用,所
以本书的探索亦希望对当前的英语教改有所启发。总而言之,学生喜欢读才是最重要的。 
所以当你读到 hip-hop、姚明、纳米科技、Rave 以及极限运动……请读懂他们,掌握他
们,复述他们! 
时间正翻着书页, 
请你阅读。

Much to Live For
热爱生活,让生命的体验成为一段美丽的乐符。翻开书页,睁开双眼,用心体会这优美
的语言,聆听这智慧的声音。
There is so much I have not been, so much I have not seen. I have not
thought and have not done or felt enough?the early sun, rain and the
seasonal delight of flocks of ducks and geese in flight, the mysteries of
late-at-night. I still need time to read a book, write poems, paint a picture,
look at scenes and faces dear to me. There is something more to be of
value?something I should find within myself?as peace of mind,
patience, grace and being kind. I shall take and I shall give, while yet,
there is so much to live for?rainbows, stars that gleam, the fields, the
hills, the hope, the dreams, the truth that one must seek. I’ll stay here?
treasure every day and love the world in my own way!

Yao Ming: New Center Style
“你怎么就知道我明年来就不是状元秀了呢?” 
??2001 年随国家队赴达拉斯集训,有记者问及“今年参加选秀有可能是状元,没参
加是否遗憾”时如是说。 
“什么时候他们能把中文讲得那样好我们就厉害了!” 
??在更衣室采访的时候亲耳听见科比夸赞他英语好,大姚却轻叹一口气。 
这就是姚明。
 
If 20 years ago you asked the average American basketball fan if a
Chinese man could play center for an NBA team, his answer might have
sounded something like this: “Ha ha. No, he’d be too short!” But now,
the doubters are silent. Who closed their mouths? Houston Rockets,

  2.26-meter-tall center Yao Ming, from China.  
Yao Ming grew up in a family of basketball players. When he was
12, Yao Ming started going to an athletics academy outside of Shanghai
and later spent a lot of time studying NBA games televised in China. 
All this has paid off. Yao’s first NBA honor was his ranking as
number-one draft pick, and he’s been elected for a Rookie-of-the-Month
award. Yao Ming has a style different from those of tall centers in the past.
He rarely goes for the flashy slams. He’d rather show off his silk-smooth

free-throw shots, or use his height to pop in jump shots from the
three-point line.
 
[注释]:
doubter: 持怀疑态度的人 
athletics: activities, such as sports, exercises, and games, that require physical skill 体育运动 
academy: 学院 
televise: to broadcast or be broadcast by television (电视)播放 
pay off:还清,赢利 
ranking: of the highest rank 排名 
draft: a system in which the exclusive rights to new players are distributed among professional
teams (美国)职业运动的选秀 
pick: the act of selecting or choosing; choice 挑选 
rookie: a first-year player, especially in a professional sport 新秀选手 
flashy: cheap and showy; gaudy 花哨的,华丽的 
slam: to hit something with force; crash 灌篮 
show off:炫耀 
pop in:投入

Tall Tale
关于吹牛,中国文化和西方文化的幽默方式真是不一样。西方文化注重逻辑严密,而中
国文化讲求整体性和模糊性。下面这段话请你仔细想一想,是真的吗?
A friend told me this story. He can stretch the truth a bit, so I’m not sure
whether to believe him. But on the other hand, truth can be stranger than
fiction! What do you think?  
Two brothers were watching a horror film on video late one night. One
brother dozed off and dreamed that he was being chased by the crazy man
from the movie, who was trying to kill him. In the dream, he hid in a
cupboard. There was no sound except his heart pounding, and he had no
idea where his crazed captor was. He was terrified! At that moment, the
video finished, and his brother put his hand on the shoulder of his
sleeping sibling to wake him. The shock at that tense moment was enough
that the sleeping brother suffered a massive heart attack and died instantly.

[注释]:
stretch ... a bit:夸大事实,言过其实 
horror film:恐怖电影 
doze off:打瞌睡 
cupboard: a closet or cabinet, usually with shelves for storing food, crockery, and utensils 橱柜
pounding: 跳动声,重击声 
captor: one that takes another as a captive 捕捉者 
terrified: deeply afraid 恐惧的 
sibling: one of two or more individuals having one or both parents in common; a brother or sister
兄弟,姐妹 
massive heart attack:严重的心脏病 
The answer: 
Of course it’s not true! If he died instantly, how would anyone know what his
dream was about?  
And think again: 
There is a girl behind each boy, and a boy behind each girl. How many children
are needed to do this?   
The answer: 
It can be done with just two children: only one boy and one girl are needed if they stand back to
back!

Nanotechnology:
Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
纳米技术带来的变化,将超出你最疯狂的想象。应用纳米科技,我们可以移动一颗颗原
子,把它们放到我们想放的地方。这样,在理论上,我们就可以制造出任何我们想要的东西。
例如,通过移动煤炭里的原子我们可以制造钻石。多么令人惊奇!当然,目前纳米技术还没
有发展成熟。
Nanotechnology is the science of moving individual atoms around and
putting them precisely where we want. Since everything is composed of
atoms, by doing this we can, in theory, construct anything we want. For
example, by moving around the atoms in a piece of coal, we could create
a diamond.  
Currently, nanotechnology is still quite crude. Scientists can alter the
properties of things like plastics or cloth to make them harder or softer or
14c e durable, but they can’t build something new from a collection of
atoms. Why? Well, because things are made up of billions of atoms and it
takes too long to move them around.  
So, the next big step in nanotechnology will be building machines
