Today asks:
A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Two questions about your reading habits that just seem to go together.
GigiAnn asks:
Do you have a favorite season of the year that you read more? (Example: during snow storms, rainy weather, or sunny and warm weather) Sorry, that was the best I could come up with.
Lisa asks:
Where is your favorite place to read? On the beach? Inside/outside?

My answer:
In response to GigiAnn’s question:
Great question!!  I never really thought about my reading habits compared to the 4 seasons.  But now that I think about it, I think I do read more during the colder months.  I  do enjoy, especially when the nights seem so long due to the changing of clocks, the cold weather and definitely when it is snowing, I love to sit in my recliner, which faces a window so that I have the view of it snowing, with my fleece throw and read.  And even when I was young, and to this day, I love to read during a T-storm.  However, when my boys were young, I would have answered that I read more in the summer.  Our house was like summer camp during the summer because every day by 10am, most of their friends would start showing up to spend the day in our pool.  Because it is an inground pool, 10 feet deep, we had strict rules regarding the use of our pool.  One of them being that they weren’t allowed in the pool unless I was outside supervising.  So everyday I would get my chores done early, grab my book and iced coffee and head out to be poolside and read.

In response to Lisa’s question:
I have 3 favorite places that I read.  Since becoming empty nesters, we turned one of the extra bedrooms into my office/reading/blogging room.  I have a very comfortable, sometimes too comfortable that  at times I doze off, recliner in this room.  It faces the window, so I have the view of the 4 seasons, where I can see our pool or watch the rain, T-storms or the snow falling.  Plus I am surrounded by my books in 3 bookcases.  The 2nd place would be on the beach in Aruba, which we visit every year.  And the 3rd place would be sitting on my “reading”  float  while in our pool.

What about you?  Do you read more  or less during the 4 seasons?  Where is (are) your favorite place to read?

  1. What stops me from reading is a reading slump. Nothing else does!!!

    Here is my BTT post!

  2. Looking over my reading for each month it looks like I like each season, but I do have my favorite seasons for reading, and my favorite place to read.

  3. The time you have to read is a big factor for me, so the season doesn’t matter.

  4. I don’t think my reading changes by the season, but I’m not sure – I should track that one year.
