Autumn Reading ~ Booking Through Thursday



Autumn is starting (here in the US, anyway), and kids are heading back to school–does the changing season change your reading habits? Less time? More? Are you just in the mood for different kinds of books than you were over the summer?

I feel like I have less time to read since September arrived.  In the summer I was traveling, and on airplanes and trains while I was on vacation, and just had a more leisurely pace of life.  A lot more of my friends were away and traveling as well so I definitely feel like I had fewer social commitments and could read more.  Now there are more demands on my time. I play on a bocce on Sundays in a league so that’s at least 6 hours when I would have been reading. I’m always glad to see my friends, but sometimes in the back of my mind or when I’m reading something particularly interesting I think about the time that my activities are taking from my reading  So sad, I know.

I never really change my reading habits.  I am a huge literary fiction fan and I love non-fiction as well so that’s the majority of what I read.  I sprinkle in other genres and fun stuff from time to time, but for the most part I know where my heart is in terms of the types of books that I read and enjoy and don’t deviate by seaon or anything else for that matter.

  1. Hi Nicole, I share the same thoughts. Even though I read less during the vacation seasons, I do buy quite a lot at places I visit. For example, in Sydney last year, I brought back a whole luggage of books. It’s crazy…
    I’m a big fan of non-fiction too. I read mostly that until in May last year when I began to venture into fiction once again.

  2. Hey Nicole–thanks for coming by earlier! Since fall just started I’m not sure how it will compare, but my “vacations” tend to be go go go since I have a family full of ADD victims. 🙂 I know you what you mean about wanting your reading time, though! I think a lot of us readers feel that way.
