Do lots of reading with eagerness.
A figure of speech is a use of a word that diverges from its normal
meaning, or a phrase with a specialized meaning not based on the literal
meaning of the words in it

The saying "I got your back" almost never has the literal meaning of
receipt or possession of another's spine. It is a figure of speech that
means the speaker intends to protect the listener, actually or
symbolically
