“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” ―F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Long, chilly nights are the perfect excuse to stay home, cuddle up, and read. There’s no better time to read than in the fall. As if you need convincing, here are a few of my favorite reasons why fall is the best season!

Time to work on that dreaded TBR!

If you, or someone you love, is trapped under a TBR, remain calm. Slowly, carefully, select one book at a time to read and savor. It’s too cold to be outside, stay in and read! This way, you’re cleaning and relaxing. See? Bliss.

It’s a good time to take advantage of “Holiday Sales”

Ok, this probably won’t help with that TBR pile, but I know you’re working on it, right? Don’t pass up a good deal just because you can no longer see your floor! You’ll get to it!

It’s the perfect Instagram season

I personally don’t post to Instagram, but I do spend hours scrolling, scrolling, scrolling. And that’s sort of like reading, right? I mean, if you stop to read the captions. And no one needs to know exactly what is in that cup. Could be a hot toddy. I won’t judge, just don’t forget to invite me.

Bonding time with your bestie

Nothing keeps your feet warmer and your heart fuller than reading with your puppers (kittens, gerbil, bunny, insert fuzzy animal here). It’ll make you both smarter.
