Many man, many minds. All people are different and so they prefer spending their free time in different ways. Some of them go the parks, forests, to the different country and enjoy the beauty of nature. Others like to stay at home watching TV or reading books. There are people who are fond of cinema and theatres, so they try to go there as often as possible.
As for me I prefer to spend my free time in different ways. I like to go in for sports, to play football, basketball or volleyball with my friends. I like to watch TV, to listen a tape recorder and play computer games. Also I like to go for a walk in the country and enjoy the beauty of nature. And my way of spending free time is connected with my hobby. My hobby is reading books.
I'd like to say that it's hard to imagine our life without books. Books play such a great role in the development of personality. They help as to forget our daily problems and to pretend we travel to the past, future and to many different, wonderful places that we can't visit in reality.
I am also sure that books are our good friends and teachers. From them we get to know the life around as better, they teach as how to tell right from wrong, to love our Motherland, to understand friendship, people's feelings. So, they teach us how to live.
As for me I like to read different kinds of books. My favorites books is: “Land of the Living. By Nicci French”, “The Lost World. Arthur Conan Doyle”, “Jack London. A daughter of the snows”, “Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk”.
