Well, here where I live, Spring is sprung–weeks early, even. Our lilac bush looks like it will have flowers by this time next week instead of in the middle of May as usual. The dogwood trees, the magnolia trees–all the flowering trees are flowering. The daffodils and crocuses are, if anything, starting to fade. It may only be April 24th but it is very definitely Spring and, allergies notwithstanding, I’m happy to welcome the change of season. What I want to know, is:
Do your reading habits change in the Spring? Do you read gardening books? Even if you don’t have a garden? More light fiction than during the Winter? Less? Travel books? Light paperbacks you can stick in a knapsack?
Or do you pretty much read the same kinds of things in the Spring as you do the rest of the year?
It's been a few weeks since I've done a "Booking Through Thursday" so here goes: Spring is here, if only momentarily. The forecast for the weekend is only in the 50's....with the lows in the 30's. Boo! But the past few days, it's been beautiful, albeit a little on the rainy side.
My reading habits don't usually change with the seasons. I'm one of those people that tend to follow my own path. I will pick up whatever book seems to interest me that day regardless of the season or the weather. I don't garden.....and if I did, I highly doubt I would be reading gardening books anyway!!
The possible exception to this is when I go on vacation. I always pack books to take with me when I travel. (It's the most important packing I do!) And I usually tend to bring books that are lighter, quicker reads. I guess if I ever go any place that's really exciting and adventurous, I might read up on the city. But so far, Disney World is about as exotic as it gets with us!!
