I have many friends t school and I love to play e\with them. In my neighbourhood also there are many children who are my friend. Although I value their friendship a lot, I have another fried also who is dearest of all. That friend is my library.

I have built a little library of my own at home. Ever since I was born my parents have been collecting books for me. It began with book to teach alphabet and then the numbers. Gradually I had books with short stories. My mother used t read them at bed time. Now I have tales, folktales from different parts of the world, fun books, and books of science, history and literature.

I love books. O my holidays I pick up any book and get so engrossed in that I often forget to eat. My mother has to yell at me to have my lunch. At times my friends come over, but if I am busy reading an interesting story I hate to put down my book to play with them.

I often borrow books from my friends and school library. Book holds a great charm form me. I find that I know a lot about various things, whereas my friends, who do not read books at home, do not know half the things that I do. They love to hear stories that I read. Some of my friends, too, have started enjoying reading books now.

Most of my relative and friends know that the best birthday gift that they can give to me is books. I have over a hundred books in many personal libraries now.
