Do you find that your mood affects the things you read? Like, if you’re in a bad mood, do you tend to indulge in reading that will support it or do you try to read things that will cheer you up? Do you pick different types of books on dreary, rainy days than you do on bright sunny ones?Mood reader? Well, I tend to read the same types and genres most of the time, whatever the weather or time of year. But when I'm really upset about something -- mad, sad, or worried -- I probably won't be reading much at all. Just dithering. Biting my nails, pacing the floor. Binging on chocolate chip cookies. Generally engaging in all sorts of very unattractive OCD behavior. Not reading.
For that matter, does your mood color what you’re reading, so that a funny book isn’t so funny or a serious one not so deep?
So even though mood doesn't really affect what I read, it definitely affects how much I read.
