Do You Read More at Certain Times of the Year than Others?

 Is There a Reading Season?

Some people think of summer as the time for reading novels. Their favorite time to read is at the beach, on an airplane headed to a vacation destination, or maybe even during a long car ride, if they're traveling as a passenger and not prone to motion sickness!

Other people may be more likely to pick up a novel during the winter and read curled up by the fire or cuddled under blankets in bed, spending the long dark evenings under the spell of a book.

Me–I read fiction any season, anytime, and as much as I can. I have always loved books. Maybe that's why, instead of just reading fiction, I now write it, too.

What I'm Reading Now

I just finished Rock, Paper, Scissors by Alice Feeny, and it kept me up quite late a couple of nights. It was a real page-turner, the kind that really keeps the reader guessing.

Next up, I'm going to read The Bird Cage, a novella by Krista Lynn White. I've met Krista through the Women's Fiction Writer's Association, and I really can't wait to read this book. I't gotten wonderful reviews and for a limited time–RIGHT NOW (June 23-25, 2023)–it is FREE on Amazon!

How about you?

  • When do you like to read?

Happy reading!



  1. How lovely to see a post from you. It has been too long.
    Every season is reading season for me. I read for comfort, for education and for escape...

    1. And how very nice to hear from you!
      I've taken a very lengthy break from all things blogging and social media, for a variety of reasons. I've missed this blog and my blogging companions though, and I hope to find my way back to the blogosphere. Re-entry is a little hard!
      I've actually thought of you quite often ... iI've not been posting, but I have been writing my first novel, the seed of which grew out of the series of short stories I wrote for "Words for Wednesday."
      I hope all is well with you, E.C. I will try to be better again about visiting your blog. I always enjoy it so much when I do!
