Overall, starting my day reading brings a consistency to my reading I never had in graduate school, when each day brought a different schedule of balancing work, classes, and internships. With only a week left in February, I've already read 18 books this year. In 2010, I only managed to read 83. I don't like paying too much attention to the number of books I read, as quantity matters so much more to me, but I do still appreciate the feeling of accomplishment that comes with keeping track.
This week brought one freakishly warm (for February) day when we actually opened the windows for a few hours in the afternoon. It was just enough of a hint for me to start to yearn for spring, which means lots of time lounging on the couch on our screened-in porch with a book. I find I always read more in the spring, and I'm curious to see if that trend continues as winter fades away.
What reading habits do you have? Do they change with the seasons too?
