Homework
After reading the text, think of the questions below and write an answer to ONE of them (5-10 sentences):
1. Do you know any shop-o-holic? Why do you think that she / he is one?
2. What is your favorite shopping place? Why do you like it? How often do you go there?
3. Is there a shopping place that you don’t like but that you visit often? Why don’t you like it? Why do you go there a lot?
