This week's Booking Through Thursday question:

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?

I think it is fair to say that the seasons don't affect what I read at all. I read what I read...regardless of anything! It never occurs to me to contemplate the seasons as I choose my next book to read!


  1. Spring doesn't really affect me but fall kinda does. Of course, it's not spring where you are anyway!

  2. I don't read by the seasons either. Happy BTT.

  3. I am the same way - it is about my mood, not the season.
