Booking Through Thursday: Spring Forward

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted at Booking Through Thursday.
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!)

     I would love it if time was just set the way it is. Preferably not losing an hour of sleep? But I definitely hate it when there's less time to read after the weekend. Dx
(And yes, waking up at what feels like 7:00 than 6:00. Talk about Monday Blues.)

     It doesn drive me crazy though. I've just been reminded of the upcoming mosquito storm that's going to be chasing me all summer long now. *hides*

Off-Topic: I haven't participated in the last 2 weeks due to problemos. Yep, I'm doing my BTT posts in the evenings now.

~Happy Reading!

  1. Ack! I forgot all about Daylight Savings. Grrh. I hate losing an hour. When I was a kid we'd fly from Guam to the states and gain a day. A whole day! I could use that right about now.

  2. The one thing I do love about DST is that it is lighter later in the day, though -- to me it heralds Spring! (Though I admit it would be much simpler to not have to deal with it at all!) Here's my full BTT response!

    1. I agree it would be nice, since there's more natural light to read. The only part I really hate is the lost hour, lol. Thanks for stopping by! :)
