Booking it Seasonally?

The time to read is any time: no apparatus, no appointment of time and place, is necessary. It is the only art which can be practised at any hour of the day or night, whenever the time and inclination comes, that is your time for reading; in joy or sorrow, health or illness. ~ Holbrook Jackson

Sorry this is late... I had trouble with internet access this morning. If it's Thursday, it must be time to Book It!

Seasonal reading

Does what you read vary by the season? For instance, Do you read different kinds of books in the summer than the winter? If so, do you break it down by genre, length of book, holiday, or...?


I bought "Santa Baby" by Jenny Crusie (et al) as soon as it was released, but then tossed it on my TBR shelf and didn't get to it until well after Christmas. I don't look for lighter fare in the summer, or heavier reads in the winter -- I read whatever tickles my fancy whenever it does the tickling.

Apparently my DD gets this from me, considering she watched "A Muppet Christmas Carol" only a few weeks ago.

Don't forget to enter to win a free book -- The drawing is tonight at 7 p.m. eastern time, so you still have a few hours.

Have a great day!

Allo Marianne, you can include me on this one as well. :D

Your daughter is like my kids. Christmas in April. No problem!

I just read whatevers at the top of the pile. Sometimes a winter story in summer can be fun and a change from all the sun, heat and sunscreen!

Hi Marianne - I did that plenty of time. I mean pick up a Christmas theme book and then decided to tossed it back to the TBR piles to read something else that wasn't Christmas theme. Just because I prefer to read the other one over the other *grin*.

I love the "A Muppet Christmas Carol", very cute movies :)

Happy BTT!

I read according to my moods. That's why the Challenges won't work for me.

Hi Marianne, thanks for stopping by! I do have several Christmas theme books lying around, just haven't got to them I said, my mood changes like the season (though we have none)! LOL. Happy BTT!
