Hobbies, part two


Almost any kind of leisure activity can become a hobby. Most hobbies fall into one of four general categories, which may overlap. They are (1) the arts, (2) collecting, (3) handicrafts, and (4) games and sports.

The arts or art forms include dancing, drama, painting, graphic arts, and music. Each art form has many separate possibilities for a hobby. For example, music include singing, playing an instrument, collecting records and tapes, learning ballet, or attending concerts and operas.

Almost anything can be collected. Hobbyists collect such things as autographs, books, comic books, cards, coins, costumes, buttons, dolls, rocks, shells, stamps and train numbers.
