My hobby is reading.I read story books,magazines,newspapers and any kind of material that i find interesting.This hobby got started when i was a little child 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.I started with simple ABC books.Soon i could read simple fairy tales and other stories.Now i read just above anything that is available.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 that hard way,For example ,I do not have to catch a disease  to know that it can kill me.I know the dangers 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 the 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 informed about the world .I also spend my time profitably.It is indeed a good hobby.
