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? – BTT

Sure, my mood can affect my reading choices. I’m quite an emotional person at times. I think most people are this way as we don’t always want to read textbooks or big long chunky books (and I love my 1000 page novels). My reading choices are less affected by my mood than my film choices though. In general, I’m less persnickety about what to read next if it’s already in library or TBR pile. It’s just a matter of due dates, authors, reading challenges, etc more than anything.

How about you?
