Hobbies play an important part in our life. My hobby is reading. I read storybooks, magazines, newspapers and any kind of material that I find interesting. They keep us busy in spare hours and make life happy.
This hobby got started when I was a little boy/girl. I had always wanted my parents to read fairy tales and other stories to me. They make us forget our worries and give us inspiration. They make life interesting and pleasant. Soon they got fed up and tired of having to read to me continually. So as soon as I could, I learned to read. Soon I could read simple fairy tales and other stories. Now I read just about anything that is available. I always read storybooks, newspaper, magazines, and any other material that I find interesting in my free time.
Reading enables me to learn about so many things that I would otherwise not know. Now I really know the benefits of my reading habit. It enables me to gain all the general knowledge about any topic. I learned about how people lived in bygone days of magic and mystery. I learned about the wonders of the world, space travel, human achievements, gigantic whales, tiny viruses and other fascinating things of our world. This habit makes me learned about the world wonders, history of the origin of life, space, animals, plants, aquatic animals, human achievements, and other fascinating things about the world.
The wonderful thing about reading is that I do not have to learn things the hard way. Reading books keep one always happy and busy. It is a good source of enjoyment, knowledge, inspiration, and instruction. For example, I do not have to catch a disease to know that it can kill me. I know the danger so I can avoid it. Also, I do not have to go deep into the jungle to learn about the tiger. I can read all about it in a book. Good and interesting books are like best friends of the one who like to read.
Books provide the reader with so much information and facts. They have certainly helped me in my daily life. I am better equipped to cope with living. Otherwise, I would go about ignorantly learning things the hard way. I swear if you get interesting and good books, you would take that as your best friend. The habit of reading books can be acquired at a young age by anyone.
The people who don’t have any habit of reading books, they would always be poor due to the lack of rich knowledge. So I continue to read. Besides being more informed about the world, I also spend my time profitably. It is indeed a good hobby.
