Spring Reading

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?

Springtime means taking the kiddos to the park frequently, which causes me to choose smaller books that can hold up to the constant interruption of looking up to count little blond heads. I do read thicker and more involved books in the spring, just not at the park.

And now that Carl V. hosts the Once Upon a Time Challenge every spring, I am making associations in my mind with springtime and fairy tales. They seem to fit together naturally.

Yes, I do the same! I have to read books that don't loose their flow with constant toddler interruptions. Thicker, more serious books are reserved for reading in bed when the little head is on the pillow.
