A Modal answer with band 7+

Well, I have an intuitive belief that everyone enjoys at least one activity without the presence of others. I'd like to talk about the one such activity which I always do whenever I am alone. I'm really into reading horror stories, to be more precise, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. This keeps my mind busy; someone said that "an empty mind is a house of a devil". If you are alone, your mind remains empty. Reading such stories is a great source to keep a mind busy.

Concerning how frequent I practice this, I could say almost every late-night when I unable to fall asleep. Whenever I go to bed and thinking of whole day activity keeps me awake, so instantly I get off from a bed and make a bee-line to study room in order to resume reading from previously stopped. And I perpetuate it until I fall asleep. There are many reasons for doing this. One it develops skills, particularly, reading, comprehension and vocabulary skills. Another reason is it gives me immense pleasure and joy as I feel like one of the primary character in that book. Lastly, the obvious one is it helps me to have deep sleep after reading the story.

Overall, I can say that I will always continue to practice this activity as it has really great advantageous.
