We all know about eating with the the seasons, but what about reading with the seasons? After reflecting on my recent reading slump, I started thinking about how my reading choices can, at times, vary with the change in seasons. For example, I tend to gravitate towards the classics (think Dickens, Austen, Tolstoy) in the fall and winter months. Maybe it has something to do with the cooler weather where there is the added comfort of curling up with a hot mug of tea and a huge book.
Then springtime rolls around and I think I start to get a bit of spring fever. My concentration wanes a bit, and I gravitate towards some historical fiction, perhaps some travel writing, and other general fiction. As we move into the summer months, I tend to lean towards some fun, lighter reads. I’m not sure if it because the summer is so busy with other activities or the warm weather. I love my books year-round and have recently started taking note of when I gravitate towards different books. I’ll have to see where the spring and summer takes my reading!
