Today's Booking Through Thursday asks: 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?
A lot more and a little less, yes. My kids head back to school right here at home, so I do more reading to the kids. Our main curriculum is totally literature-based (shocking, I know), so I read outloud to them for a couple of hours most days (in addition to their regular nightly reading).
My own personal reading doesn't change too much. I rarely read my own books during the day, although I can sneak in 30 minutes at a music lesson. No matter what the season, my main reading time is at bedtime. The only difference in fall and winter is that I tend to fall asleep earlier and thus forego some of my prime reading time.
