Booking Through Thursday - Seasonal Reading

Here's today's Booking Through Thursday:
  • Does what you read vary by the season? For instance, Do you read different kinds of books in the summer than the winter? I don't think it varies much; however, when I'm away on vacation I tend to bring lighter fare.  When I was in high school I remember leaving for vacation on a Shakespeare kick, and finding myself reading Julius Caesar while sunning on the beach.  I realized it really didn't fit my mood or the setting (!!), so now I try to make more "intentional" choices when I'm going to be travelling.  Long flights demand books I can get lost in.  Vacations require something interesting, but that I won't mind putting down because chances are, we'll be out & about doing other things most of the day.
  • If so, do you break it down by genre, length of book, or...?   Length is not usually an issue for me, but I might choose a different genre for those lighter reads I mentioned above.  On vacations I tend to read contemporary fiction and stay away from nonfiction.
