I know a lot of people who are able to fit in more of their reading depending on the season. So I thought I’d speak about my seasonal reading a bit and ask you guys if the season affects your reading as well!
I am personally a summer reader, and I think this is mostly because of schooling. I am a terrible procrastinator with school assignments, and I’m quite bad with managing my time. In addition to that, I am also the type of reader who likes to sit down for hours on end to finish my book. As you can probably see these two factors don’t work too well together as a result I often do most of my reading when I am off of school. So I usually stockpile books until those lovely school breaks, and then I spend far too much time reading.
After Summer I probably get the most reading done in Autumn. The reason for this is less motivated by good scheduling but something about the season. I adore Autumn, the leaves, the smells the atmosphere are just wonderful. So I am more often inspired to delve into a nice spooky book. Fall is really the only season that I think inspires me to read seaonal books, I find myself so much more tempted to read witchy books in October! I love the opportunity to sit down and read spooky tale, while looking out at changing leaves! Whereas when I read in other seasons I feel as though I am less inclined to choose books to fit the weather.
I know so many people love to read in the Winter. And the thought of reading in front of a fire in a cozy sweater does sound so appealing! When I do read more in the Winter it is usually a result of having received books as gifts or extra spending money. I imagine most people who identify as Spring readers would be inspired by the sparks of life starting to bloom!
No matter what season you like to read in, I’d love to hear about it! I’m really interested to know if you find you get to fit more reading in depending on the season! And if the seasons effect your reading choices?
