I have an ordinary hobby-----collecting rocks. But a guy in Germany has a strange hobby. He likes to collect books with green covers. He just do it for a special reason---he wants to cover a wall in his bedroom with just green books one day. That seems like an interesting hobby. But it is very hard.
