Reading in Cycles
I don’t know about you, but I have noticed I tend to read in cycles.
Lately, my leisure reading is concentrated in three areas: mysteries, biographies, and books about food & cooking.
this is, of course, not a hard and fast rule. I can be tempted by a book on the Brooklyn Public Library website that is outside of those areas, or a book by a friend — I have a ton of writers among my acquaintances.
But for some reason, this is how my reading habit works. Some months I will read primarily books about writing, or organizing one’s stuff, or philosophy & religion books. Other months, it will be craft books. But I always seem to gravitate to one area for a while, then move on to another.
Do you read in cycles? What are your favorite things to read currently?
