This week’s question:
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?
This is a question I’ll be better able to answer next year… Now that I’m done with school my annual Summer Reading Project is essentially extended indefinitely. In previous years, I’ve barely read anything during the school year that wasn’t assigned, except for short kids books — the Wrinkle in Time series, the Lemony Snicket books, Garth Nix’s Keys to the Kingdom (the newest of which I’m reading right now!).
Now that I live in summer vacation land, it’s much easier to keep up with books, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve been reading more slowly than I thought because I have started a few new fall endeavors like orchestra and swing dancing, but I think I’ll be much better off without homework. 🙂
