Speaker A: Snacking throughout the day is common behaviour. People get peckish in the afternoon or late evening and they snack on a packet of crisps or some nuts. But really, this is a bad habit to get into, and one that’s hard to break. We eat extra, unneeded calories this way, and sooner or later we start to slowly put on weight. A sensible breakfast, a satisfying lunch and a healthy dinner is the best eating habit.

Speaker B: We all like a bit of flavour in our meals. Vegetables and grains only go so far in providing that. It’s much tastier to have some grilled chicken or beef for lunch or dinner. It’s certainly fine to have it in moderation, but most doctors and nutritionists will tell you it’s not healthy to eat beef with every meal Once a day, or even just three times a week, is probably all you should consume.

Speaker С: Most of us lead busy lifestyles these days. We have to rush off to work without breakfast, our lunch hours are more like half-hours, and sometimes its 9 pm before we sit down for dinner. Were usually starving by this point, but we should resist the urge to consume a huge bowl of pasta or a big plate of meat, That food doesn’t get burnt off when you re sleeping, and most of it turns to fat.

Speaker D: This has probably happened to you on a number of occasions. Your morning goes by sluggishly and by lunchtime you’re about to pass out from hunger. Let me guess – you ran out of the door without having anything for breakfast, didn’t you? Were all very busy hurrying off to work or school in the morning, but it’s really important to have a bowl of cereal, some yogurt or a banana to give you energy before you rush out.

Speaker E: Has this ever happened to you? You’ve got a meeting to rush off to, or a class that’s starting in fifteen minutes, but you re starving because you haven t eaten all day. So in a spare fifteen minutes, you devour something as fast as you can. Of course, this is a very unhealthy way of eating. You should eat your food slowly and calmly, or otherwise, you won’t be able to digest it and you may even choke on it!

Speaker F: Everyone has their favourite foods. Some people like things with vegetables, others with some kind of carbohydrate, like rice or pasta. My favourite foods, I must admit, are the ones that really aren’t too healthy. I love chips, fried chicken, anything that’s deep-fried, really I also adore cakes and pastries, especially ones with icing or whipped cream. Its fine that they’re my favourite foods, I just have to watch how much of them I eat, as do we all.

Joanna: Peter, I’m quite stressed out about the maths exam this Friday. I’m afraid I’m going to do very badly in it, and I don’t know what to do.

Peter: Oh, no! That sounds worrying. Why are you so stressed about it? Is maths not your strong point, Joanna?

Joanna: Actually I’m pretty good at it, it’s just been a hectic week. I’ve had basketball practice the last two evenings, because we have a tournament coming up soon.
Peter: Oh, that’s right. I was planning on going to watch that actually. Well, have you studied for the exam yet?

Joanna: No, that’s the problem! It’s in two days and I’ve got more basketball practice tonight. I was planning on studying really hard tomorrow night.

Peter: Hmm, I suppose that’s better than nothing, but you really should look over the material tonight. It’s not a good idea to leave it all until the last night. But I’m sure you know that already.

Joanna: Yes, I totally agree. I just don’t know how to fit it in. Maybe I’ll have a look at dinner time, if I’m not too tired. That’s another thing; after a long day at school and then basketball practice, I’m too tired by the time I’ve got a moment to study.

Peter: Well, you said you re good at maths, right? You probably won’t fail the exam. I’m sure you’ve been paying attention in class, haven t you?

Joanna: Oh yes, I follow the lessons without problems. I’m not at all concerned about failing. I want to get an A! When I said I would do badly in it, T meant that I might only get a B. You know how I am. I’m a bit ambitious.

Peter: Well then, you need to make time to study! I’m taking a maths exam too, you know. I’m sure it won’t be exactly the same, since I’m in a different class, but were covering the same material. Unfortunately my teacher has a reputation for difficult exams!

Joanna: It sounds as if we both need to do some studying then!

Peter: If you like, t could come to your house tomorrow night and we could study together.

Joanna: That’s a good idea. Do you mind meeting round 7.30? That’ll give me an hour to eat my dinner and rest a bit first.

Peter: OK, great. So, see you then!

Presenter: Hi folks and welcome to the programme, Book Talk. With us today is Randall Simms, who works in marketing for local book publisher; Nation Books. Thanks for joining us, Randall.

Speaker: Thanks for having me.

Presenter: Your publisher recently participated in a book fair. What sort of trends do you see happening with books?

Speaker: Well, there’s a big push towards digitising everything. People want to download books for their electronic readers, rather than go into the shops and look through shelves of books. Of course, there are still those more traditional readers who greatly enjoy that pastime. But many book lovers these days are looking for the easiest way to get their hands on their favourite novel.

Presenter: So your number one goal is to provide all books in electronic form, correct?

Speaker: Well, it’s one of our goals, certainly. We’ve been digitising our books for a while now, ever since electronic readers first became popular a few years ago. But to be honest, I think we need to look beyond just putting everything on a computer file. In order to compete with other publishers, we’ve got to offer something a bit more special. For our educational books, for example, were teaming up with games developers to produce exciting materials for young learners.

Presenter: Oh really? That’s a good idea. How does that work exactly?

Speaker: Kids these days do a fair amount of gaming in their spare time. Why not make educational materials that combine learning with the gaming experience? It’s not a totally new concept, but if were working with a really good games developer; we can make a learning tool that’s every bit as entertaining as a game as it is educational

Presenter: I see. So aside from digitising books, your publisher will also focus on modernising learning materials.

Speaker: Correct. Other publishers are taking an interest in this trend, and you know how the business world is. If you don’t change the way you do things every once in a while, consumers get bored with what you have to offer. Especially if they see other companies offering something more interesting. It’s the competition that drives innovation, in my opinion.

Presenter: What other innovative ideas were present at the book fair?

Speaker: Were also trying to attract new authors to the industry, so we held a seminar on how to write an award-winning book. It brought out not only aspiring writers, but literary agents who are looking to represent new talent, because aside from creating a new format for book publishing, we still need people to write the engaging material.

Presenter: Do you think people are reading books less often these days?

Speaker: That does seem to be the case. Most kids, for example, would rather watch a DVD than spend a few hours reading a good book. I think that’s why publishers need to work harder to reach this crowd. I know independent bookshops are definitely struggling. Another idea presented at the fair was a new website in which people can search through a list of independent booksellers. Users can create a profile and review their favourite books and booksellers.

Presenter: Oh really? That sounds quite interesting. It’s a way of getting people more involved with local bookshops.

Speaker: Yes, and were hoping the younger generation will take interest in this sort of thing. Some 350 bookshops will be listed on the site for starters, and if the idea is a success, hopefully more bookshops will join in. It’s a way of revitalising some of the older, more traditional – but still very valuable – aspects of publishing.
