A friend of mine insists that reading cannot be a hobby. He thinks it is something you do when you can't think of anything else to do, in the same way that some people plonk themselves down in front of mindless TV. His arguement is that a hobby is something you make time for, not something that you do when you have time.
I think that reading can be used in that way but that it can also be considered a hobby, especially if you follow a specific subject matter and actively seek out new books in that field.
Do you read? Is it a hobby for you or something you do to help you fall asleep at night?
