My hobby
People get a kick out of doing most extraordinary things. The most widespread hobby is collecting. I can't say that I'm really mad about this or that kind of leisure activity. I tried collecting stamps, they are so nice & informative. But gradually my interest just faded away, & I gave my collection to my friend for his birthday. Then I moved on to collecting recordings of the pop groups I liked, but after a while it seemed pointless because music radio stations play old & new hits all the time. I go on doing it, but I wouldn't call it a hobby. I like dancing at some club or disco, but it's just a way of spending time, not a hobby really. Best of all I like reading. It's a very quiet occupation, & it does not require any particular skill or ability. But that's what gives me the greatest pleasure. I enjoy reading all kinds of books - historical novels, travelogues, biographies, novels, science fiction, detective stories, poetry, etc. Someone said that reading to the mind is what exercise is to the body. Books can't be replaced by all the mass media in the world. Reading is a perfect combination of business & pleasure, of intellectual work & entertainment. So, frankly speaking reading is my hobby.
