Booking Through Thursday

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?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

My answer:

I don't think I read anything different at different times of the year (unless I'm participating in a challenge). The past 2 years, I've read along with a couple of different reading lists for a competition that my daughter and husband are/were involved in. That wraps up around this time of year, so I was able to focus more on books in my TBR stack. I also probably read a few more ARCs at this time of year, since I come home with so many from TLA. But overall, I real all the time all year long...

Hi - I'm returning your visit via Weekly Geeks, but I think chances are pretty good I'll be back!

I haven't encountered anyone who did this week's BTT who said that the change of seasons had much effect on what kinds of books they read - I know it doesn't in my case.
