My Hobby

Hobby is something through which you can pass your free time. That’s why it is also known as pastime. Everyone has a different hobby, like singing, dancing, music, etc. My hobby or pastime is reading. I read story books, magazines, newspapers and any kind of material that I find interesting. I developed this hobby while I was a little boy. I had always wanted my parents to read fairy tales and other stories to me. However, soon they got fed up and tired of having to read to me continually. Gradually, I learned to read. I started with simple ABC books. Soon, I could read simple fairy tales and other stories. Today, I can read just about anything that is available. Reading enables me to learn about so many things that I would otherwise not know. 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.

The wonderful thing about reading is that I do not have to learn things the hard way. For example, I do not have to catch a disease to know that it can make me stick to bed for days or even 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. Books provide the readers 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. Reading helps me in many ways. My general knowledge has increased. I participated and won many quiz contests, science contests with the help of my hobby. It improves my grammar and vocabulary. My hobby helps me in my studies also. I always get distinctions in my subjects. So I continue to read. Besides being more informed about the world, I also spend my time profitably. It is indeed a good hobby.
