Summertime Reading?

Do your reading tastes change when the warm weather hits?
Every year tons of “Summer Reading Lists” come out. From all sorts of outlets: NPR, Oprah, etc. etc. I’m a gal who loves a good book list, of any sort. I like to see what others are reading and to find books to add to my ever towering TBR pile.Β 
Something I don’t do? Change my reading style based on the weather. I read what I read, I love the books that I love. The number on the thermometer doesn’t mean a darn thing to me. (As far as reading goes anyway! When it’s hot as hell like it’s been lately it means that I’m holed up somewhere that has a blasting air conditioner.)
I’m curious, do you find yourself reading lighter fare in the hotter months?Β

  1. It depends…if I'm travelling, I like something 'lighter' because of all the interruptions. But usually, I'm just like you…I read what I read. Non-fiction if I'm writing though! :)Kristi


  2. Hi Jennifer – I so agree with you. i never really understood the summer reading list thing. I always assumed that the idea was to read something \”light\”. I think that the idea started with \”Beach Reading Lists\”. Even when I read at the beach I do not find that the book needs to be easy or light. Lately I see that some of the summer lists contain some pretty heavy classics which further confuses me.
