I loved reading as a child and since then I have read a large number of books. At my leisure, I always spend time on this entertainment. I also like to read scientific articles and I think that it develops my abilities very well. Once I even read a lot of articles about black death. This is a very terrible disease that claimed thousands of lives all over the planet. I believe that it is very necessary to know such things.
