Everyone seems to have a favorite season. For me…give me 365 days of autumn! I just love the cool crisp air, the colorful fall leaves and the orange pumpkins. I always feel more alive in the fall. It is also my favorite time of the year for reading. I love to grab a soft warm throw, a hot mug of tea and find a cozy spot, inside or outside, to cozy up with a good book. I take my latest read outside, sit on my front porch rocker with a blanket and tea to read the hours away. The cool air and smell of fall leaves being burnt make the perfect backdrop for a good mystery or horror story, especially as the season moves closer to Halloween! In fact I’m saving a book called “The Secret History of Witches” by Louisa Morgan to read in October. Do you ever save a book in order to read it during a certain season or holiday?
Every season has it’s time and it’s reading pleasures. Summer has the beach reads with our toes in the sand or our bums in the water. Spring has it’s new, exciting reads coming for the new year, the self-help books which give us some hope of keeping our new year’s resolutions or our gardening books as we plot our plans for getting back out in the fresh spring soil. Winter offers readers the opportunity to stay inside, curl up on a favorite chair with a roaring fire and hot cup of cocoa. Perhaps we revisit old Yule favorites during the winter months, like “The Autobiography of Santa Claus” by Jeff Guinn.
There are so many great opportunities to grab a book and read throughout the year. Do you have a favorite season for reading?
