My Hobby Essay / My Hobby Topic


Hobby is what a person likes to do in his spare time.  Different people like doing different things, so we can say that people have different hobbies. “Tastes differ,” says the proverb.

Usually people choose hobbies according to their interests. Some people are fond of collecting different things. They collect coins, postcards, toys, objects of art and stamps. I have a friend Vika. Collecting coins is her hobby.

As far as my interests are concerned, my favorite occupation is reading. I like to read story books, detectives, historical books and any kind of material that I find interesting. I like to read because my grandmother always read me some fairy tales and stories during my childhood. When I was about 10 my parents always bought me books to read. They always told me that habit of reading is one of the best traits that a man can boast. Now I read about anything that is available. Reading enables me to learn about so many new things. I learn about some historical facts, different human achievements, space travels and other fascinating things of our world. My room is full of different books and I dream of becoming a writer.

My younger brother, on the opposite, is not hopping to make his computer hobby his future profession. He just plays computer games and doesn’t see any sense in combining career with hobby. It simply became his favourite activity in his leisure time and is helping him to relax. I respect his choice. But anyway it is great, when your hobby is your profession.
