Nowadays people seem to read newspapers mostly. Many people are fond of reading detective stories or

spy thrillers. I myself prefer books about politics, history. I enjoy reading books by such English writers as

My favorite writer is William Shakespeare, one of the outstanding personalities in the world literature.

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon not farm from London. His father, John Shakespeare,

came to Stratford from a village and opened a shop there. He never became a rich man but at one time he was

an important official in the city. William Shakespeare lived in Stratford until he was twenty-one. He got

married and had three children. At the age of 21 William left Stratford for London to join a company of actors.
