Booking Through Spring

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?

I have to say, I read pretty much the same stuff, but I read it sitting in different places - like out on the front porch with a glass of iced tea, sprawled out on my bed with the breeze coming through my window (my bedroom gains a lot of charm in the spring, what can I say?), at the cabin in the woods, or by the river while my dad is fishing. Weirdly, in the spring - especially this spring - I like to read more because I can read in these lovely places with this warm comfy atmosphere. My house is not especially conducive to reading in the winter - my room is too cold and the rest of the house is wide open so it's hard to grab a spot that's peaceful enough for good reading. So, I guess I read more in general in the spring but the same sort of stuff that I would read the rest of the year. Spring and summer used to be when I would tackle huge books because there was no required reading for school which gave me lots of time for more massive undertakings but now that I'm out of school, I can't even say that.

Look - there - I posted on my blog! Jeez, what do the rest of you book blogger sorts post when you're not posting book reviews? I really need to work on this lull between finishing books thing. But it'll have to wait, because I'm about to finish a book - so soon there will be a review! And uh, Grey's Anatomy is new tonight, which means more TV that I simply must watch which is another hour of my free time sucked into the abyss...but I'm sure I'll at least finish the book before that comes on!


  1. Hey Megan -- unrelated to this post, but as a reply to your comment, you ALMOST won. I feel really bad for not realizing there was more than one Megan. I just entered the number of entrants into the Random Number Generator, searched through my comments, and picked whichever name the number generator corresponded with. I feel so bad, though! But you can win more contests in the future!

    Sorry. :(

  2. I read all different things all year round. I read whatever touches my fancy at the time. I seem to go in spurts with serious fiction, to romance, to historical fiction. I read a bunch of one kind then I move on to something else.
