BTT: Day and Night



Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted here: http://btt2.wordpress.com/.

This week's question:

Do you divide your books into day and night reads? How do you decide?

Before, I would read anything be it day time or night time. Time was not an issue. When I started reading Kathy Reichs' first book, Deja Dead, I realized that I don't have the stomach to read it during the night. Her descriptions of decapitated bodies and maggots had me imagining the worst  at 2 in the morning. I decided then that I will only read my bible and books that are light reads during night time. The morbid and gruesome books are reserved to be read with the sun on.

Note: By the way, I'm still not yet finished reading Deja Dead. Yes, it played tricks in my mind. Everytime I reach for it, I remember her description of the maggots squirming on the floor. Ugh! Disgusting. I wonder if I'll ever finish it.

I would never even touch that book. LOL...

I am more or less a one book at a time reader, whether it is day or night.

I enjoyed Deja Dead... but you're right... that's not a "nighttime" book, by any means!

Oh wow yeah, Deja Dead is deeeefinitely not a nighttime read! I'm glad I'm not the only one who saves light reads for the night! :)

I don't divide my books by day or night. Here is my answer for Booking Through Thursday.
