Why Seasons Rock for Book-Lovers

I love seasons. To me it's a repetitive cycle of something new to look forward to every year. The same old comforts bring back new chances. Unfortunately as a Floridian I don't get the full effects of actual seasons, but I can still imagine a bit as we get minor shadows of fall and winter, even if they're not right on time with the rest of the country.

Every season has its perks and every person has their favorite. Some prefer the cool, breezy change of Fall, others the long nights and hot days of summer. There's people who love the cold and snowy landscapes for Winter, while others prefer the new blooms and beginnings of Spring. Regardless of a person's favorite season, all of them rock for readers in their own way. When you think of reading in different seasons, what do you think of?
