The W's of Reading: What's the Best Reading Weather?
I don't want to discount the fun times to be had reading on a beach, from a back porch swing, or even while out for a walk, but fall and winter just seem to be so much more conducive to long stretches of reading. Who feels pressure to go outside when the weather is bad? I know I don't.
Here is to a beautiful fall ahead and a warm holiday season to boot! I'm looking forward to:
--Snuggling down in the rain to joining in on Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon this Saturday. I have a huge stack of books, so I look forward to diving into them.
--Decorating a little for the upcoming holidays, because isn't that the joy of owning your own home?!?
--Finding a book or two that takes place over the holidays. It's fun reading about the holidays in a story and it can add so much to the season.
--Re-watching some of my favorite shows. I love films like When Harry Met Sally, While You Were Sleeping, and even holiday episodes from Friends.
I know this is a short list, but I'm leaving myself open to fun, relaxing times this season. Who would think I would say it, but I say bring on the rain and snow!
What do you most like about the fall and do you find yourself reading more?
