Or do you pretty much read the same kinds of things in the Spring as you do the rest of the year?
When skin starts showing and heads start snapping around on the street and puppies are straining at their leashes to sniff at each other and the soft ice cream truck is chiming its sickly little ditty, it's spring time in New York - a restless time - and my reading habits probably do shift. Lately at the beginning of spring I tend to want some YA fantasy. That may be due to the fact that the end of the term is at hand and I'm trying to run away from papers and exams. I definitely start picking up some travel books to plan our summer trip. Sicily this year! No gardening books here - no garden! But we are looking for a guide to NYC flora and fauna. We run into dozens of birds, trees, and flowers on our walks in the park, but aside from the hawk we saw last week, some blue jays, cardinals, mourning doves, and robins, and the familiar forsythia, tulips, and daffodils, we can't identify most of them. The other thing I know I'll be reading in spring are study notes. In fact, I had better start preparing some. But my preference for novels stays constant and it can be paperback or hardcover, large or small, size doesn't matter. I stocked up on a few just last week.
