This Weeks Question:
Do your reading habits change based on your mood?
Do you read a certain genre if you are feeling depressed or happy?

Sometimes. I feel that I read more when I'm trying to avoid something/someone that will make my mood plummet. I guess you could call reading my coping mechanism. I throw myself into reading as a way to forget what's bothering me. Granted this may not be the best thing to do, but I get a lot of reading done. As for the genre based on mood, not really. I will read whatever can grab and hold my attention. If it doesn't have me on the edge on my seat, I avoid it and put off reading. 



What are your reading habits like?

I think this is a good answer - I never really thought about using reading as an escape mechanism, but I think I actually do that too!

Thanks for making me think, and happy Friday!

Old Follower!

Yes, my reading habits tend to change. When I'm really mad or upset, I'll tend to just lay on the couch and read a book or two in that day.
