Did you ever notice that people seem to talk more about reading in the summer months? I suspect we all read during the darker winter days as well, but "beach reading" and bestseller lists do tend to be part of everyday conversations for the vacations days of June – August. And, there is also the current book club phenomenon. It may be one of very few times that a woman actually gathers with friends outside of motherhood or career realms, and publishers are really starting to take note (and figure out how to connect with us!).
Whether it is a thick historical tome, the latest legal thriller or fiction, light or heavy, reading is a fairly universal past-time. It's just a matter of how engrossed you can manage to get, or not. I am on the extreme side of that pendulum, and read a lot of everything all the time, but what about you?
1 book per month|I find just a few spare moments every day to lose myself ? but love it.
3 to 6 books per month|I have made daily reading a steady half hour or so habit, and find it incredibly relaxing.
6+ books per month|My library card is worn out and I am practically a shareholder at Barnes and Noble.
Magazines only|I like smaller chunks of entertainment/ information that I can easily pick up or put down at a moment's notice.
