Recognized Habit and Hobby

Standard

Let’s just say I’ve been attempting to discover or create a hobby for myself. Unsure of what that was, I asked my husband, “do I have any hobbies?” Now ladies, I know we tend to ask our husband rhetorical questions, but this time I was really hoping that he could offer some advice or direction. To my surprise, he did! “Reading,” he replied, “that’s your hobby.” As I stared at him, all sorts of thoughts were running through my head. First, is reading really a hobby? When I think of hobbies I think of cooking, painting, or some sort of craft. Could reading actually be a hobby?

According to Dictionary.com, a hobby is “an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation.” Imagine my surprise when I found out that my enjoyment of reading books actually classifies as a hobby.

It’s sparked my decision to start this blog and actually talk about the books I’m reading. To anyone that’s interested, I will be sharing lessons I learn or things that I consider interesting. I’m hoping that it could serve as an online book club, where we meet and share all about books.

Welcome to our adventure–the joy of reading!
