Here is this week’s BTT question and my response:
Or do you pretty much read the same kinds of things in the Spring as you do the rest of the year?
And then SPRING! Hooray! I have more energy for everything. I read more, sleep more, eat more, and am generally a better person. I’m very eclectic in my book choices (except for romances, eww), so I’ll read anything that catches my eye. I have a couple of gardening books that are collecting dust because I don’t use them. I’m not really much of a gardener. It’s too much like work, and I don’t want to work in my spare time.
I prefer heavy hardback books year round because I like to show off what I’m reading, and that’s the best way to do it. I’m probably the only person in the world who thinks that reading raises my coolness factor. Big books are an ego thing for me, kind of like big trucks are penis extensions for men ( :
I go for long walks in the spring. Right now, I’m up to about 2 miles a day and I’m going to start walking to work in May (4 miles a day), like I always do. One thing I do start reading more of are books about local fauna, like birds and butterflies. So far, I’ve seen the following butterflies on my walks:
There will be more varieties as it gets warmer. I love spring!
