F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in his famous novel, The Great Gatsby, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” These 10 reasons why fall is the best season to read embody the same spirit as Fitzgerald’s autumnal greeting.
This summer, reading on vacation just didn’t happen. No worries. The slowdown period between the end of summer and beginning of fall is a great time to catch up on all those books you didn’t get a chance to read at the beach or pool.
Two words: Fall releases!
If you’re back in school armed with textbooks and loaded with homework, then you especially enjoy those moments reading fiction.
Those crisp autumn days are perfect for reading outdoors.
When the weather turns stormy and daylight gets shorter, the best place to be is indoors in a comfy reading chair with your favorite book.
Because big books and big sweaters just go well together.
Not to mention books and beds…
Food too. Summer is the season for cold drinks and salads. When autumn arrives you’re ready for hot drinks and real food again. Hot chocolate, coffee and tea, homemade cookies, slices of pie, and of course all things pumpkin… It’s no wonder reading and snacking go well together, especially in autumn!
Halloween is fun because you and your book-loving friends get to dress up in literary-inspired costumes.
Reading helps take the stress out of the approaching holiday season.
Also, don’t miss these works of art that capture the coziness of fall reading. BTW: book lovers usually agree the best time to re-watch the Dead Poets Society is during autumn.
