Realize the Need to Summarize
by Alex Andy Phuong

Many educators would punish students for not completing reading assignments.  Students would have to read the classics, and then suffer from possible pop quizzes during their school days.

Many also have a hatred against reading summaries of great literature.

Nevertheless, there actually is a need for summaries.

People only have a limited time to live, and books are…well…books.

Human beings also need food and water, and not words on paper that people could never consume (unless they choose to eat paper, of course).

And of course, some people would rather watch cinematic classics rather than read literary classics.

And remember…a movie is…just….a movie.

Therefore, summaries are essential for the sake of time!
