I like doing sports and reading in my free time. My favorite sport is basketball. I often play basketball with my classmates after school and play with my friends on weekends. I like playing basketball because it can make me strong and health. When I play basketball, I forget all my worries and I can make lots of friends who have the same interest. In the evening when I finish doing my homework, I like reading because I can get lots of knowledge from books and the books can tell me more about China and the world. Books are our best friends and they can open our eyes,too. I like all kinds of books, story book, novels and so on.
