MEM­O­RABLE AR­TI­CLE: “It Pays to In­crease Your Word Power” by Wil­fred Funk (Au­gust 1959)

I’ve been read­ing this mag­a­zine since 1958, when I was a Grade 9 stu­dent liv­ing in In­dia. My dad was a sub­scriber, and our fam­ily would wait ea­gerly for the post­man to bring Reader’s Di­gest every month. Back then your ar­ti­cles helped me learn English—es­pe­cially Word Power, which en­abled me to ex­pand my vo­cab­u­lary. I also de­voured the book ex­cerpts, which al­ways con­tained in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries of courage and ba­sic hu­man good­ness—two virtues that re­main im­por­tant to me. I’m grate­ful to have had this valu­able re­source grow­ing up, and I still read the mag­a­zine reg­u­larly to­day.
