Booking Through Thursday: Winter Reading

This week's BTT topic is about seasonal reading habits: "The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch … what kind of reading do you want to do?"

I really don't think my reading habits change a lot from season to season. I read pretty much the same sorts of books all during the year. It probably is true that, during the winter months, I usually read more than I do at other times of the year. So maybe I'm just more serious about my reading then - you know, starting a new year with all those newly-minted resolutions and all.

When I look back at my reading list from last year, I can't really detect any special patterns except that I read the largest number of books in the months of January and May. But the types of books or genres don't seem to change at all - mostly literary fiction, humor, and suspense. I guess I'm just one of those "this is what I like and I'm sticking with it" types. Boring but consistent.


  1. My only requirement is that the book is plot-driven.

  2. I'm with you, Joy. I read what I like year round. Interesting though that you read the most books in Jan and May. I'm going to go back to my list for last year and see what month I read the most too. Have a great weekend and what ever you're reading, I hope you enjoy it immensely.

  3. Year round, but especially on a cold snowy day, my fall back comfort read is a good mystery.

  4. My habits are the same year-round too. I'm with matt about plot-driven books for days when I'm holed up-otherwise I just fall asleep!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
