My Hobby – Collecting Books
A hobby is something that we do not do to earn a living but to please ourselves. We engage in a hobby to refresh our minds after hard work. Without a hobby, it is difficult to enjoy our leisure. The love of books is bibliophilia, and someone who loves to read, admire, and collect books is called a bibliophile.
I have bobby. It is collecting books. I collect books whenever I have more need for some books. I developed this hobby as a child when my parents recited stories from the storybooks to me. They regularly bought storybooks for me. The stories enchanted me and I began to treasure those books. At that age, I listened to stories from “Thakurmar Jhuri’ and `Alif Laila’ and got lost in the imaginary world of those books. The beautiful pictures of the books also charmed me very much. This fascination with books continued till I got admitted into primary school. At one stage my father bought me a beautiful bookcase. I began to put my collection of books in that bookcase. My parents continuously gifted my good books. Gradually My library began to get enriched. I buy books from a bookshop near my house, and some other stores. When I grew up I also bought many books about my taste. I collect many kinds of books such love storybooks or textbooks I am learning at school, you know, Maths, History, Geography, Biology: and books about nature.
My library opened the doors of my mind to the outside world. My library has stimulated a love for reading books also. I collect books because I would like to learn from books. I have collected books on a wide variety of subjects. Every day, after finishing my lessons, I pass some time with the books of my library. Thus I have come to know a wide range of things reading the books in my library. My reading has helped me in many ways. It has enabled me to think clearly and articulately. In the future, I try to make my collection larger. It has also improved my collection of words, use of language and writing skills. My academic result has always been good and the key is my library. I would open a book store of my own.
My library is a source of great pleasure and joy to me. This hobby has made me a better person.
