This week's BTT:
Autumn is starting (here in the US, anyway), and kids are heading back to school – does the changing season change your reading habits? Less time? More? Are you just in the mood for different kinds of books than you were over the summer?
I live in the UK and as the nights draw in, the appeal of snuggling up with a good book definitely increases! In my head, I have a vision of a brightly burning fire, an engrossing read, a comfy chair and perhaps a blanket... I really must get around to buying that fireside chair!
In the summer (assuming it's ever actually sunny here, of course!) I do often take my book out into the garden but there's always distractions such as pulling a few weeds, snipping back new growth, getting out the trowel, small (hot) dogs sitting as close to me as they can or even hogging my rug... I find warmth very soporific and that doesn't often bode well for a concerted stint of reading in the sun, so I tend to listen to an audio book or short story on my nano and leave the book in the shade. Or enjoy a little snooze instead.
I always feel as if I should "make the most" of any sunshine we get as well and try to head out to a park/woods/beach with the dogs (and Mr B!) to enjoy a walk where you don't realise (yet again) why it's a bad idea to mix spaniels with moisture or plant growth. Looking out of the window now, this could well be one of those days.
Getting back to the actual question asked though, I don't think that the change of season alters what I would choose to read in any way. I have my teetering stacks of TBR books growing steadily throughout the year and plough through them in whatever order takes my fancy.
