Do your reading habits change in the summer? Do you take your books outside more? Do you curl up in the air conditioning? Do you read fluff instead of serious books? Are you too busy playing in the sun or gardening or whatever to read much at all?
I just got back home last night from a fantastic vacation in up north Wisconsin and Da Yooper! Family reunion, beers, grilling, hanging out at the lake cabin, outdoor sports… what more could you want!? It was a wonderful trip and I just love spending time with my family… although we were so packed with activities, I didn’t have much time to read!
So that brings me to today’s Booking Through Thursday question regarding summer reading habits. I think my habits may shift just a little, depending on what I have going on, but nothing drastic. I still like best to read on the porch with a tasty beverage nearby. Usually in the summers I have no rehearsals or concerts, and this summer no internet or TV at home (and my husband is away), so I’ve been reading more than the other seasons. But I’m moving again August 1, so then my reading time will be cut down a bit as I get our new apartment set up. Also, I have taken two long road trips already and not been able to read much on them (well, I say that, but I mean paper/ebooks. I was able to get through a lot of audiobooks in the car!). So it just depends. I don’t pick books/genres differently, I think… although this particular summer I’ve been drawn to sci-fi/horror/plague type stories a little more than usual.
How does the summertime effect your reading habits?
