My Favorite Hobby
Why I Enjoy Reading Books
As an eighth-grade student, I have an active lifestyle, but my favorite hobby is not basketball or running. It’s reading books.
There are many reasons why I love reading books. Firstly, books can offer me an escape from reality. After a long day of school, I can come home and read a book to forget about any stress or problems that I may be facing. Secondly, reading books helps me to improve my vocabulary and English skills. I’ve noticed that after reading extensively, I am able to write better and express myself more eloquently. Furthermore, reading also helps me gain knowledge on a variety of subjects.
My favorite books are the ones that leave an impact on me. I still remember the first time I read “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. It’s a dystopian novel that made me think deeply about the world we live in and our individual roles in society. I also love mystery novels, especially ones written by Agatha Christie. Her stories always leave me guessing until the very end.
Reading has become a part of who I am. Whenever I have free time, I grab a book. In fact, I can’t even fall asleep without reading a few pages of a book. It’s a habit that I cherish and can’t imagine giving up.
In conclusion, reading is not just a hobby for me. It’s a way of life. Through books, I am able to explore different worlds, gain knowledge, and improve my language skills. I hope to continue reading for as long as I live.
