Autumn Reading

btt button

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?

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!

And also–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. I get very, very tired trying to sort out the duplicates.

  1. I think this question is applicable to a small section of readers. I am not a mom and I don’t live in the U.S (it’s actually rainy season here)
    I would have posted this on my blog, but I don’t really have much to contribute other than saying that changing seasons do not change my reading habits. But its certainly more fun reading in the rainy season all cuddled up with a cup of tea in my favourite chair.

  2. Happy BTTs Everyone ( hi Deb! )

  6. Here’s my short answer:

    I’m constantly amazed by the assumption that people’s reading lists change with seasons. Where does that assumption come from?

  7. It’s actually starting into spring here in Australia. 🙂 I didn’t even think about the possibility of the change of seasons affecting my reading until now.

  8. Didn’t we just have this question at the begining of spring/summer?

  17. I left this response at another readers site and thought I’d repeat it here:

    I’ve been ’storing up books like acorns’ as I posted recently. I live in Florida, however I spent my childhood in the midwest, so I still have all those patterns and habits of changing seasons that stick with me. Someone blogged recently about the beginning of the school year and those patterns sticking with us as adults – and if you think about it we did that (go to school) year after year after year and that pattern certainly must have placed a groove of some kind in our brain. So autumn was the time of learning – learning = books and reading. Yes, I read all year, and I gather books all year, but something about this time of year makes it feel like hoarding, like stocking up. Even if I can still sit on the beach and read in the dead of supposed winter.

    And I love ghost stories – I’ll scour the juvenile section for a favorite, or a new favorite, and read it. Aren’t we all still that child who was scared of the dark?

    Enjoy reading everyone!

  18. Great question! And who doesn’t look forward to Charlie Brown’s The Great Pumpkin, too?!

  20. Hi Deb! Mine is up. Happy BTT everyone. 🙂

  21. Mine is at but I cheated and talked about winter reading. Cheating seems fair since it’s my 666th post.

  22. I didn’t answer on my blog today, because the short answer is no, I don’t think my habits and tastes change with the season except that I look up seasonal poems and quotes.

    Seems like we did a similar question at the beginning of the summer.

  23. Posted mine… and off to read some of yours!

    Isn’t this basically the same question asked about summer reading? Anyhow, my answer is the same. My reading patterns don’t vary by season.

  32. The quantity of books I read doesn’t change with the seasons, but the subject matter does. In the fall I seem to tend more toward thrillers, especially eco-thrillers such as Gordon Gumpertz’ Tsunami, and historical fiction. I’m thinking it’s a holdover from my university days that I put the fluffier reading aside for a few months.

  34. I just found BTT and so this is my first post. I’m excited to get involved.

  35. Because I am fluent in all languages when it comes to understanding things said about foods I wish to consume, I understood quite well when the man behind the counter explained, in German, that the drink never comes with cream, anyway. ,
