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!

  10. My first BTT with a rather two-sided discussion!

  11. This is my fourth try. Don’t know why my comments haven’t appeared. I apologize if all four show up at once!

    Good question this week!


  12. Your post brought tears to my eyes… The forecast here calls for snow tomorrow night… Barely a bud in sight… sigh!

  13. Here’s my response; the question is appropriate considering NYC has been experiencing a bit of warm weather lately. It looks and feels like spring!

  15. Wow… a big crowd today! Happy Thursday, everyone…

    My post can be found here

  16. Mine is up now, here

    Happy Reading!

  17. My first time up! It was fun!

  18. Flowers? Trees? What the heck are you talking about?

    My very short answer is here.

  19. My response is up:


    My reading habits and choice of reading material does not change with the seasons. I have a few authors that I enjoy reading and look forward to their new material. I don’t read many gardening books and I don’t have a garden but I would love to have one. I enjoy reading books by Stephen King, Jeffery Deaver, Dan Brown, Dean Koontz and Danielle Steele. There are others that I like but I cannot remember the authors.

  20. Sorry! I should have left my link…
    Here it is!

  21. Here’s mine (and this is my third submission since it doesn’t seem to be working):

  23. The short answer is “no.” Find out why.

  24. Not sure what’s going on but I tried commenting 4 times this morning but not one of them came through. I’ll try once more.


  25. Up and at ’em. Very passionate about this topic actually… the whole idea of “switching”.


  26. I was going to get up early and do this — so that I’d be at the top, I planned — but then I figured I should probably go to school and write my exam instead. Oh well.

    Here it be:


  27. Haven’t done a BTT in a few weeks, but I’m back! Feel free to check out my response here:


  28. I haven’t participated in the BTT in a few weeks. But I’m back! Here’s my answer to this week’s question:


  29. This is my third and last attempt to post my comment here in this thread. For some strange reason, the first two that I submitted didn’t go through! If there is a time delay, and they suddenly show up, please forgive the repetition.

    This is what I was trying to say: I haven’t participated in the BTT in a few weeks. But I’m back! Here’s my answer to this week’s question:


  30. REMINDER!!

    Don’t forget, folks–sometimes WordPress’s spam filter seems to decide that a lot of perfectly valid answers are spam. I periodically check throughout the day for lost comments. But, PLEASE–if your comment doesn’t show, don’t post it four more times in the hopes that one of them will go through. If WordPress thinks you’re spamming, it’s not going to put any of them through until I tell it, and by then, I’ve got four times more comments to go through than I would have had….

    Now, that said, it’s great that there are so many responses today! I love it when I hit on a really good question….

  31. Here’s mine. http://mommyreads.com/?p=73

  35. Another website that either doesn’t know nor care it’s not spring everywhere on Earth right now.

    Anyhow, my answers:


  36. My internet went down so I’m super late today, but here’s mine anyway: http://www.theinsidecover.com/2008/04/booking-through-thursday-springing.html

    Better late then never, right?

  37. One minute to spare to make this a Thursday post!

    Mine is here


  38. Well, shoot.

    I posted this Thursday morning but forget to come here…

    Anyway. It’s up.


  39. Mine is up. Happy BTT from Hong Kong! 🙂

  40. Thursday’s over, and – wow, I’m #125! Here’s my answer. Have a great weekend!

  41. Oh wow, I guess I wasn’t the only one who had a problem with the multiple posting! I didn’t realize WordPress considered my comment spam. So sorry about that! It’s never happened to me before, so I didn’t know about that… Now if only I could delete the duplicates of my comments above, I would. But for some reason, it doesn’t give me that option. Sorry again, Deb. Won’t happen again.
