If you live in Minnesota you know that this winter is very strange. We’ve had so much rain! But very little snow. It’s gross. Anyway, the warm weather and lack of snow is definitely causing a distinct lack of Christmas spirit. I remember last year I decided around this time that I wanted to listen to a Christmas themed audio book, but they were all checked out! With multiple holds!
This year, however, the vast majority of our Christmas related books (audio, fiction, cook books, picture books etc) are still on the shelf or in displays.
It’s really kind of fascinating to see how the weather affects our reading habits.
