Reading books at E-Town

Updated: 2024-04-23

Today is World Book Day (April 23). On this special day, we carefully select four books and invite you to join us in a feast of ideas.

General History of Global Technology

Wu Jun 

The book begins by providing an overview of the field of study, then divides into four parts: ancient science, classical science, modern science, and contemporary science. It details key figures, events, inventions, and the significance of various domains such as agriculture, mathematics, astronomy, geography, physics, medicine, industry, and biology, over tens of thousands of years.

Here Comes the National Treasure 

Ma Jingjing 

Using a narrative style, the author explores the origins of 21 national treasures, delving into their historical and cultural stories. The book is enhanced with many exquisite illustrations, inviting you into a world of national treasures that you might not have seen before.

The World Is So Beautiful

Jaroslav Seifert 

While reading this book, you seem to meet an elderly person filled with wisdom and romance who refuses to wait for death passively. Instead, he shares his most precious memories with you—his childhood, love, friends, poets, a heavy snowstorm, a chair, a cigar, a German attack—and recalls past times in a life paused. In memories overshadowed by trivialities and time, the book helps you to clearly see the true faces and objects that should be cherished.

Educated:A Memoir 

Tara Westover 

"An astonishing story and truly inspiring. As I read about her extreme childhood, I began to reflect on my own life. Everyone will love 'Educated.' It's even better than you've heard," remarked Bill Gates. This book is a perfect example of how education and reading can change a person's life and destiny. Tara's story provides the best answer.
