This week's BTT topic:
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?
Well, we don’t have kids, so we’ve never experienced that “back to school” rush that parents of school-age children go through. However, being married to an English professor does mean that I’ve always thought of September as the real beginning of the year – the pace of life quickens and everything starts up again. And, of course, it’s always been the start of the biggest season for the publishing industry, too. So there are always tons of new titles out there, enticing me to expand my already ridiculously long “to be read” list. (Not, of course, that I’ll manage to read all those new books – I’m still working on the new releases from last year.)
I suppose the only change in my reading habits in the fall might come from the fact that the summer means reading a few lighter books. One or two things I can take to the pool or the beach. Other than that, I don’t think my choice of reading matter really changes from season to season.
And as for having more or less time to read – I always seem to have less time to read than I’d like, don’t you?
