My hobby is reading books .Whenever I gets free time, I read books and I enjoy it. My teacher always tells us that reading is very important for children as we gain lot of knowledge through it. My parents also buys books for me and now there is a small library in my home. There are lots of books about freedom fighters, warriors, kings, etc. available there. Last time when I won the school proficiency, my aunty gifted me a full collection of great fairy tales. My favorite books are Mahabharata and 5001 fantastic facts. Reading also helps me to gain confidence and prepare for school quiz competitions.

This hobby got started when I was a little boy. I had always wanted my parents to read fairy tales and other stories to me. Soon they got fed up and tired of having to read to me continually. So as soon as I could, I learned to read. I started with simple ABC books. Soon I could read simple fairy tales and other stories. Now I 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 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 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.
So I continue to read. Besides being more informedabout the world, I also spend my time profitably. It is indeed a good hobby.
