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?
The seasons don’t change my reading habits too much. Yes, sometimes when it is hot I want something a little lighter – James Joyce doesn’t really lend himself to poolside reading. Not having kids and no longer being in or teaching school, the whole back to school thing doesn’t do much either. Well, my husband is sitting on his computer grading things and doing lesson plans, so maybe that does leave me more time for reading (although only after I make dinner and only if I neglect any cleaning).
The biggest difference is that on those lovely rainy days of autumn, all I want to do is stay home, in bed, with my books.
What about you? Are you a seasonal reader?
