Can Reading Be a Hobby and Why When It Comes to Living Life

Hi Everyone I am a Lifestyle and Hobby blogger who loves reading and has been reading since a very young age

Can Reading Be A Hobby?

Hobbies can be anything that we want them to be, if we are interested in something specific it can be a hobby. For example, if you are interested in Cars collecting them can be a hobby or if you are interested in reading books reading can be a hobby, whether the reading is done through books that you buy and put on your bookshelf and keep, through a kindle or phone with a book app on it, audio books if you like that, or even going to the library and taking books out that way and reading them. Reading any type of book can be a hobby especially when it comes to living life because reading for most people is very relaxing. When we read we can be transferred into a different dimension or world, or even both. How can reading be a hobby though, well it's relaxing and can be an escape from our everyday lives. If you're reading books for pleasure that is, now I know there are books like self-help books and fairy tail books, even fantasy. There are so many different genres of books that people can read these days and people do read as a hobby. Reading is a hobby now more than ever don’t you think?


With reading being more of a hobby now then it has ever been since the world went haywire a few years ago do we ever wonder why that is? Is it because of the way the world is these days, or is it just so that we can escape from the real world and relax and not have to think of anything but the words we are reading in our books. Reading is a way to clear your mind of what else is happening in your life, and throughout the world as we know it, at least that is the way that I look at it. When you are so busy with doing things in life but you take the time to read a book how does that make you feel? Have you ever just stopped and taken time to read a book, for fun? I know a lot of people have done this, and really enjoy it. So if you have never taken the time to just read a book to relax and enjoy it, why not try it out for yourself, now or even over the holidays when you have some down time.


I know some people might not like reading but nobody can like everything. Hobbies are all different for each person and reading being a hobby is one of them. Reading does help one live a great life though, no matter the book at least that is how I see it. What about you, do you think that reading can help people live a great life no matter what they are reading even if it is for a hobby? Hobbies are a way for people to relax and show the world and the people around them that they have other interests, other than working and getting paid, not that hobbies can’t get you paid, but most hobbies like reading aren’t the paid type. I have been an avid reader since the age of six, and have used it as an escape and a hobby all at the same time. Yes I said I have been reading since the age of six and the story behind that, is I was told by a substitute teacher that I couldn’t read. What six year old can read? Not many right off the bat, so sounding out words is common. After she said that however, I took the book I was reading into a corner with my cousin and read the book, and ever since then I read all the time. If I don’t have a book in my hands then there is something wrong. Now I do however use ibooks on my iphone but I do prefer holding a book in my hands. I enjoy feeling the pages in my fingers.


Reading can be a hobby especially when you are just trying to live life because it can be something of many forms. It can be a form of relaxation, or work if you need to read a lot for work, but if you do need to read a lot for work try to take some time to read for pleasure too you will feel so much better if you do that. That I know, since when I had to read books in school for school purposes I always had something else I was reading too just to give my mind a break from the school things. Living life requires a lot of reading because almost everything has words on it when you pass it by and if you don’t read it you might get lost. Although not everything requires reading, most things do. Audiobooks, for example, require listening and some people enjoy that more than actually reading themselves, which is okay too because it is another form of reading, in a way. I am not too fond of audiobooks but it really depends on the book and the storyline. I am actually listening to a book right now, or rather I need to finish listening to a book, from that boy series by Jilian Dodd the book is actually called, that baby, it is the third book in the series, and I am really enjoying the audio and I never thought I would say that. I am not really an audio- book reader but this book is very good that way, so if you are looking for a great audio book or just book series in general check out that boy series by Jillian Dodd you will be glad that you did.


When you are listening to books do you still read other books? Most people who read would probably answer yes to this question, and they would consider reading a hobby and a great pastime, at least I do, if you read do you consider this too? Since reading is very relaxing it can be a great hobby, the reason for this is you are giving your mind a break from all the hustle and bustle of your everyday life. Along with listening to the audiobook I just mentioned I am reading Ravenous by Helen Hardt. It is a steel brothers saga novel, book number 11. I have read every other steel brothers novel up until this one and I am enjoying it also. If you like suspense and romance I would check out the steel brothers series. So yes reading to me is a hobby and something that I do to relax me. Which in turn means reading can be a hobby so if you are looking for a great new hobby why not try reading for yourself and see what happens.

Can Reading Be A Hobby And Why

Why Are Hobbies Good For You?

How is reading a hobby and why when it comes to living? This is the burning question, reading is a hobby because it can always be something different and it can be done throughout your entire life, no matter where you are. It can be fun and relaxing depending on the person and what they find fun and relaxing in the form of a hobby for themselves. Reading is a great pastime because it also teaches you how to spell and speak differently especially when you listen to audiobooks. So yes reading can be a hobby and a part of living because reading anything helps you get through life, and helps you understand new and interesting things.


When we read most of the time we are doing it as a past time, if we enjoy it that is. We do it to relax and not think of anything else, but the words that are on the page. So we are not thinking about work or what we have to do with our houses and things like that, we are just reading to read something that interests us. I do this often because I like to be transported into another dimension which I am when I read any book.Reading books is great because it gives us a sense of knowing there is more out there even if it is just fiction that we are reading. Sure some people might say that reading on devices isn’t a good thing since we use our devices all the time, and that is where most people read, but if it is broadening your mind in a way why not read the way you want too. Reading is a great hobby because it gives you a break from your everyday busy-ness but it still broadens your mind at the same time, so essentially you are killing two birds with one stone.


Reading can become a hobby when it comes to living because to most people it is a form of relaxation for them. We all need something in life to help us relax and if reading is the thing that does it for some people then why not do it, and if you are reading books that you enjoy that is where reading as a hobby comes in. Most people that enjoy reading, do the reading for school or work if they need to but read things that they enjoy on their off time to just clear their minds and take a breather. I always enjoyed reading for both school and relaxation because I get the relaxing feeling when I read to relax or when I do read to relax now I get that feeling too. So if you are not a reader but would like to become one, try reading books that you enjoy and put them into your life, either before bed or on weekends and that could be how it becomes a hobby and part of the way that you live life.


Hobbies are great to have in living life, because it is a form of downtime for you. Reading is a great form of downtime if you choose to use it that way. Just find a book that you enjoy, turn all the other distractions off and sit and read it for even fifteen or twenty minutes a day. You will feel so much better when you do this, and isn’t feeling good what life is all about? Yes it is so why not do a great hobby like reading to help you feel good and see where it leads you in the future. Try reading out for yourself and you will see this that I am sure of.


Living life is all about hobbies isn't it? It is to me because everyone needs something to relax them and what better way then to do a hobby. When you are relaxed it is not as though you are doing nothing, you are usually doing something that you enjoy that doesn’t feel like work and that is called a hobby. This could include things like reading, watching tv, exercising, or sewing just to name a few. Do things that relax and interest you when you figure out what these things are. You will be living life through the hobbies that you do, and if that includes reading then so be it. Do the hobbies that you enjoy and so much more will come out of your life.
