Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday asks:
The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch … what kind of reading do you want to do?

Honestly, I'm not aware of my reading habits changing throughout the year. When I think of winter though, I think of classics and/or big, heavy books, like the one I'm reading now, World Without End by Ken Follett.  It just seems like I have the time and attention to devote to them, instead of being busy doing outdoorsy kind of stuff in the warmer months.

What kind of books do you read in the winter?

  3. My reading habits don't change either. But since we are supposed to be getting a big storm, here's my list for this weekend - http://justbookreading.com/2010/02/04/booking-through-thursday-%E2%80%93-winter-reading/.

  4. I can understand taking on a heavy book unfortunately with a toddler that is not possible most days.

  5. I definitely gravitate toward books with heavier subject matter in winter as well, but most of the time I let my mood take me where it wants to go.

  7. Mmm good answer! I haven't read any of Follett's works. How do you like? My answer is at The Crowded Leaf.

  8. I've had the first novel on my TBR list for a while now. During a recent snowstorm I was tempted to start it...

    I need to read it at some point. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

  9. I am weird about this. Beach theme books only in the summer and holiday books only Oct-Dec.

  10. I definitely have to agree about the classics. I know when I have time in the winter to read them, I'll read them versus something else. Heavy reading just doesn't seem right for summer.

  11. You're right, Jess. My mind is too much on the beautiful day outside to really focus on big books in the summer. So maybe my taste does change a little bit throughout the year. I'll have to pay more attention.

    Thanks for stopping by, everyone!
