Booking Through Thursday: Springing

Well, here where I live, Spring is sprung–weeks early, even. Our lilac bush looks like it will have flowers by this time next week instead of in the middle of May as usual. The dogwood trees, the magnolia trees–all the flowering trees are flowering. The daffodils and crocuses are, if anything, starting to fade. It may only be April 24th but it is very definitely Spring and, allergies notwithstanding, I’m happy to welcome the change of season. What I want to know, is:

Do your reading habits change in the Spring? Do you read gardening books? Even if you don’t have a garden? More light fiction than during the Winter? Less? Travel books? Light paperbacks you can stick in a knapsack?

Or do you pretty much read the same kinds of things in the Spring as you do the rest of the year?
This spring I've really a noticed that I only want to read light, easy, fun, frivolous things. That's why my War and Peace project is suffering. That's why I couldn't manage one of my book club reads this month (1776). That's why Quentin's, my current "treadmill" book is STILL down there on the treadmill and for some reason isn't calling me to go work out. That's why I keep getting distracted by all the YA books that are begging to be read!
Yeah.. that's why! Of course! It's spring!


  1. YA books can be a nice distraction. Happy BTT.

  2. I like a nice light book once in a while too!

  3. I don't usually change what I read because of the seasons. But I can see that some of my habits might where I read, and how much I can read. Stuff like that.

    Happy Thursday...and good luck with War and Peace. THAT'S a project!
