I read all year round, as I’m sure we all do. But I tend to read a lot more during the fall and winter. Partly because summer is the busy time at my work. So I don’t get to read during work nearly as much as in the off season.
And also partly because it’s cozy to snuggle up in my chair with a blanket and rock while reading in the winter. My cat snuggles in with me and is less of a book nuisance in the winter as well. When it’s cold, she is focused on cuddling and sleeping instead of book stealing.
Even though fall and winter have less daylight hours, I still find myself reading a LOT more. On average, I can go through 4-5 books a week during that time. While in the summer I’m lucky to finish 2-3. Some weeks, I only get to read one book start to finish. And part of that is because I notice my scheduled posts are dwindling rapidly! So I spend most of one of my days off doing nothing but reading to try and catch up a bit.
But summer is also the time when I seem to get a lot of books for review. And it also never fails that all my library holds come in at once. My TBR wants to run away from me screaming in the summer (and isn’t that an amusing mental image?!) I’ve had to turn down more publisher requests this month, than I have in the previous 5 months combined. All due to books coming out for summer, and me having no extra time! It’ll all settle down again in August when everyone goes back to school, but time seems to both drag and fly by until that happens.
So what about you? What season do you read the most during? Do you read the same amount steadily all year? Do you binge on books in a particular month? Have you paid attention, or does it not matter as long as you’re reading?
