"Do not lose your way in the dark," voices sang in the houses, to harps and lutes. "O dear sweet dead, come home, and welcome here. Lost in the dark but always dear. Do not wander, do not roam. Dear ones, come home, come home."
-- Ray Bradbury, The Halloween Tree
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?
I'm a seasonal reader during autumn, certainly. Once the crisp autumn winds start blowing, I crave spooky stories. I read more suspense, mysteries and thrillers during the fall. In the winter I tend towards classics and longer books.
I think I read more in autumn and winter because there's very little to do outside. During the spring and summer I spend a lot of time gardening. I hate the cold so I don't participate in many outdoor activities once winter sets in.
What about you? Do you have any seasonal reading habits?
