Booking Through Thursday: 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?


Since returning to school two years ago, I find the once the semester begins I tend to only read books that engage me from the beginning. If a book has a slow start, I tend to put it aside until I have more patience.  During the school year, reading is a luxury and a form of stress relief.  If I am not enjoying a book, then I want to move on to something else.  This semester, I started with a very thick novel that is divided into manageable pieces.  This may be the first semester where I only finish one book!

I found that when I was writing my thesis I did the same thing, and used fiction as a stress reliever. I mostly stuck to things like disaster thrillers such as Tsunami by Gordon Gumpertz, and really light reading such as fantasy and even romance novels that I didn't have to think too much about just as a way to relax.

I think that a lot of people in school are drawn to certain genres to help them relax.
