This is Thursday's question:
Does your current mood affect your reading? Affect your choices? I know there are plenty of books I enjoy, but only if I'm in a particular kind of mood-or books that can lift me out of a bad mood without fail. Surely I'm not alone?
I'd definitely say a big, huge YES!
My mood absolutely will affect my reading and my choices. I admit that sometimes when I'm grumpy, reading is the farthest thing from my mind. Other times, reading will cheer me up!
And when I'm happy and cheerful already, then reading a great book will just about make me dance! (Although not really, because dancing and me? Yeah, we don't really see eye to eye. Or hand to foot. Or whatever........as in, no coordination at all.)
Still, sometimes it depends on the book itself. The synopsis may sound just up my alley, but it may not be the day for that particular book. I mean, I might pick it up and be unable to get very far because it simply isn't what I'm wanting to read at the moment.
Why? No idea. It just isn't. I've learned that if I can't get into a book that I'm positive that I would normally enjoy, it's best that I put it down and search for something else.
I'll get back to it! But that moment? It simply isn't happening.
Funnily enough, I have a book waiting on my Kindle right this very moment. I really want to read it, but it just isn't working right now. So I'm waiting. Til when? No idea about that either. But someday it will be the right moment and I just know we'll be great friends!
(Okay, I suppose I also have to admit that I know the author. Which is why I'm anxious to read her first published work. So yes, I will read it. Just not today. But hopefully soon!)
Anyway! What about you? Does your mood affect your reading? What are your thoughts, gentle readers?
You know I want to know. I know you know. And you know I know you know. (Yes, I'm doing it again. Answer my questions and I'll stop!)
(Because you know I am just that devious.)
I really want to know! Honest!
(Okay, stopping now. It's late. What can I say?)
Kara's tired and silly,
Hoping you'll give in to her plea.
Comments make her happy!
Answer her and you'll see!
