Audience, classmates and fellow members of the jury my name is Javier de Luna and I’m going to talk about Reading as a hobby

Sharpens ones comprehension.
It is quite clear from the title that this thread deals with reading as a hobby. Actually, I was the thread-starter. I wanted to discuss reading with people who simply can’t do without it. I wanted to speak about beneficial effects of reading. And that is why I have called it "Advantages of readin

My hobby is stamp colleting. When I was still only a baby, my mother began to collect for me. Of course, she did not let me touch the stamps until I was old enough not to spoil them. I remember that it was on my fifteenth birthday that she first put them into my hands. They were in four fat books, b

To a child reading could be a good friend. It will accompany him/her in different places, it will teach him lessons, and it shows him what life is, and how tough it can be. As one grows older one grows closer to reading, too. It accompanies you in every test t
The first day of school in America was not much of a difference as being in a jungle alone. I was thirteen years old, and this was the first time I had ever attended school. In a place where no one speaks the same language as I do, I felt like a little mouse surrounded by wild cats. Day by day, I w
Lacking experience in writing and reading, English is my most feared subject. It is the one and only vulnerable spot in my otherwise invincible academic armor. I hate writing and I despise reading. Other than magazines, I cannot recall reading anything since "The Crucible" which was a teacher assign

The “Absurd” in Frank Kafka’s Metamorphosis
We can see in the start of the story the main character, Gregor wasn’t that bothered that he was changed over night into a bug, instead he worries more to get up and go to work which in reality it is abnormal. But the absurdity of this is that
Whenever one of my teachers decide to assign the class a reading assignment on a fantasy novel, I shudder in response and let out a long, doubtful sigh. I have always avoided reading fantasy novels. I have always feared that the stories would be too cheesy, too over-exaggerated, ultim

Reading is a necessity for some people and a hobby for others, but either way it is something that we start to take for granted as adults, forgetting that there was once a time when we couldn't read. The sad fact is that for many adults, this is still the case. They lose out on the joys and the bene
MOVIES THAT SHOULD BE BOOKS AND VICE VERSA
I think that there are many books that should be movies and vice versa. Movies sometimes are good, or even start from a book, and sometimes books are made from movies and turn out good. One that thin

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 boy. I had always wanted my parents to read fairy tales and other stories to me. Soon they got fed up and tired of having to

My love of reading and my hatred of writing is an omnipresent force that haunts and delights me daily. One of my favorite moments in life is when you reading the final paragraph of a great book. Completion comes, you close the book, breathe out a sigh of contentment as you hug it to your
The subject of censorship is a very controversial one, especially the banning of books. Many people believe they must protect themselves and others from the "evils" of many classic books and works of art because they can be deemed "indecent" in one way or another. Many believe that this is absurd an
