Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it! A little brush up on my tweaked rules:
- If I followed you, you are NOT required to follow me back: only if you want to :)
- If you follow me, I'll seriously consider following you back, but it's not guaranteed
Now: on to the question!
Q: Do your reading habits change based on your mood? Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?
My reading habits, changing on my mood...I'll eat chocolate if I'm feeling cozy. But I almost always read either Harry Potter, or Eragon when I eat chocolate. The only substantial habit I have while reading is to read without stopping, for hours and hours until I finish it (and if I'm interrupted, I'm in this sort of post-reading haze until I finish, haha) So I can't say that my habits change.
If I'm feeling nostalgic, I'll pull out an old book and read. But otherwise, no I don't read a certain genre really. My moods don't dictate what I read. I just read whatever sounds interesting, hehe. Of course, if I change genres abruptly, it's more of a profound change, like what's happened recently with my epiphany that historical fiction is what I truly enjoy.
I just realised. Habits occur over a long period of time, and moods are swift and fleeting and intermittent. The question doesn't make sense.
Anyway, enough of my ranting! What about you? :)
