Musing Mondays (Nov. 29)

With the holiday season now upon us, how does it affect your reading? Do you have more, or less, time to read at Christmas? Do you read Christmas themed/related books?


Pleave a comment with the link to either your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!
I find that I read that I read for longer around Christmas, but that I don't get through as many books. I'm usually so ready for a holiday by now that my relaxed reading time usually turns into relaxed dozing time, or relaxed I'm-looking-at-the-page-but-my-mind-has-wandered-off time. Despite this, I usually spend at least a couple hours a day sitting up reading under the Christmas tree.
I don't read Christmas themed books as a rule, though, as obsessed as I am with Christmas, this is now striking me as a little odd. I read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve every year, and my bookclub is doing random Christmas books for December this year, but that's about it.
My Christmas read is actually Louisa May Alcott's Little Women - not that it's particularly Christmas-y, but it's my favourite book and I like to save it for when I can sit under the tree and eat candy canes.

My reading habits definitely change around this time of year because that time is spent running around, doing all the holiday to-do's. But I don't mind because I love this time of year.

Off to read more posts!

Thanks for hosting MM.
