    Booking Through Thursday – Spring Forward

    Clocks change this weekend here in the US, which means one less hour to read … does anybody else begrudge that hour like I do? Wish the Powers That Be would just pick a time-frame and stick to it instead of inflicting clock-driven jet lag on an innocent public twice a year?
    (Yeah, so not a question so much about reading … except, of course, you do need to use your electric light to be able to read, so the hour it gets dark IS relevant!) – BTT

    Time, how I want more of thee! Of course, we technically get the hour back in the autumn. I have too many hobbies these days, and I’m sad that I must manage my time between them, work, and being generally social. I do look forward to summer and it’s longer days. June 21st is one of my favourite days of the year.

    I do read a lot in the evenings which is not great, but my new Otto Lamp helps. Still, there is a reason why I read much more in the summer. Not only out of habit, but all that daylight!

    I’ll try to get to bed earlier on Saturday so I can save as much as that missing as I can.
