I am Wilson. My sister and I spent our summer holidays with our uncle this year. He was a geologist and loved to collect stones.
One day, he bought us two backpacks and asked us to go to the mountain with him. We walked the whole day. Every now and then he put stones in our backpacks. To our surprise, he also took some stones out from them. But we thought he had just found better stones.
When we returned to the house, we were very tired. The backpacks were so heavy that we felt great relief when we took them off. Yet our uncle's backpack was half empty.
“Why did you give us so many stones?” We asked.
“I didn't. You did,” he said. “You didn't know it, but I gave you a little attitude（态度）test today. I listened to every word you said. Each time you were complaining（抱怨），I added a stone to your backpacks. Each time you talked about something with positive（积极的） thinking，I took out a stone. And now look at your backpacks.”
Our backpacks were full of stones.
“Your negative（消极的） thoughts are just like stones. You carry them
in your mind just like those stones in your backpacks. The more negative thoughts you have, the heavier your mind will be,” said our uncle. With great love, our uncle taught us one of the most important lessons in life—the power of the attitude.

Do you worry about your health? Have you tried to run or walk for exercise and then stop? If you answer yes, you should try a new type of exercise: aquatic（水中的） exercise. Aquatic exercise is a kind of exercise you do in a swimming pool. For example, you can run, walk, or even do a mind-body practice, such as yoga. More and more people are trying aquatic exercise. In the United States, the number has grown by 25% in recent years.
Aquatic exercise has many benefits（益处）. First of all, it feels easier than exercising on land. Why? You weigh about 90% less in the pool. It is also better for your knees than running or walking.
Aquatic exercise feels easy, but you still burn calories (卡路里). Water is 1,000 times thicker and heavier than air. In the same amount of time, you can burn more calories in the pool than in the gym. That's because it takes more energy to move in the water.
Aquatic exercise is safe and easy to learn. It doesn’t require any special skills. For most kinds of aquatic exercise, you don't even need to know how to swim.
In fact, most people say they feel more relaxed in the water. They stop thinking about the things that make them anxious. The cool and quiet environment makes them exercise more.
Aquatic exercise is suitable for everyone. You can do it at any age. It can even help people who have been hurt in accidents. With aquatic exercise, they can move in ways they can't on land.

With online booksellers and e-readers becoming popular, traditional bookstores seem to be dying out. But is it true? Many traditional bookstores are now trying everything to make themselves more attractive（有吸引力的） to readers. And some of them have done a great job.
Online bookstores usually have larger book stocks（库存） than traditional bookstores. However, some traditional ones are clever enough to sell just one kind of book and win the hearts of a special group of people. Trends Lounge in Beijing is such a place for art lovers. The bookstore has walls of books with arts and design. You may meet popular artists there or perhaps even a happy couple that chooses to get married in the bookstore.
Some bookstores even go one step further. They themselves have become tourist places by showing the characteristics（特色）of their cities.
Hong Kong has many second-floor bookstores. These bookstores are small, but their books are carefully chosen, just like the city of Hong Kong.
In order to attract customers to read books at the store, some traditional bookstores are also coming up with coffee centers in bookstores, providing free WiFi for readers, holding reading clubs for students and opening a self-service book store in the downtown area.
A great bookstore can encourage people to read in many ways. After all, you can’t replace（替换）the touch of paper, the smell of print, and the wonderful feeling of being in a bookstore. Paper books give people a very different reading experience than e-books.
