As I write this, the clock has struck and passed midnight here so it’s no longer Thursday technically. Which means I am, once again, answering the BTT question late. But better late then never, right? This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
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?
Oh yeah, when the autumn rolls around my reading habits definately change. When I was still in college, I generally got to keep on reading. My late night job at Athletics allowed me time to study, but usually by that time of the day I was exhausted so I preferred to read for pleasure rather than academic reading. If I had an hour or so between classes I would genreally squeeze in some leisure reading time. It was too small a time frame to really get any productive studying done, especially if I had to walk across campus to get to my next class (no need for diet pills!). So for the most part, autumn means less reading time.
This year is shaping out to be different in that regard, not that it’s necessarily a good thing since I would like to be working right now.
With regards to what I read, during the autumn I tend to want to go for more horror and gothic novels. Whether they actually give me shivers or not is irrelevant. As far as I’m concerned, autumn is time for all things that go bump in the night! In the summer, it’s just time to read anything and everything I can get my hands on.Tagged: autumn, booking-through-thursday, books, btt, Memes, reading
