        A scrapbook provides an ideal way of preserving personal and family histories. Enthusiasts claim that scrapbooks quite simply provide one of the best and most special ways of remembering things over long periods of time. In the past, making a scrapbook gave any child a splendid way to spend a rainy afternoon. Filled with old photographs, used tickets, newspaper cuttings, magazine clippings and postcards, the scrapbook brought together so many different memories to be cherished all in one place.

    Why have scrapbooks caught on so massively in France? One reason may be due to the country’s long history of artistic creation. Another is the country’s 35-hour working week. This means that many French workers have more leisure time than their fellows in other countries. Whatever the reason, le scrapbooking has exploded over the last three years and is continuing to grow.

1. Question 30 gives you 2 marks as it is asking for your opinion. 
2. And because of that lifting sentences from the text in order to answer the question is not 
    allowed. You must give your own logical answer.
