Booking Through Thursday: Day and Night

Today’s question is suggested by Mae.

“I couldn’t sleep a wink, so I just read and read, day and night … it was there I began to divide books into day books and night books,” she went on. “Really, there are books meant for daytime reading and books that can be read only at night.”
– ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Milan Kundera, p. 103.

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

The way I have my schedule structure, the time I have for just pleasure reading is an hour and half before bed–the rest of the day I’m usually pouring over Jane Austen, Shakespeare, or medieval English literature. In that way, I guess, I separate them out- academic reading during the day, me reading during the night. The only other way I separate it, I guess, is if I’m reading horror, which I won’t read at night. For instance, there’s a story about a haunted Majora’s Mask cartridge floating about the Internet that finished up last night, but I couldn’t finish it last night, as I would like to, you know, actually sleep. But otherwise, not really.

  1. You have more discipline than I do! I usually only read a short story or nonfiction or something at night so I don’t get too caught up in a book and feel tempted to stay up past my bedtime. lol
