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!)
While I hate losing an hour of sleep, I'm fairly ambivalent about Daylight Savings time. It's been around so long that I do think it would be interesting to discontinue it and see if there is any fall out. It takes me awhile to adjust to losing that hour of sleep, but it really has no effect on my day. When school is still in session, it's difficult to get kids in bed while it's still light outside, but now that my boys are older, it's not as much of an issue. I do look forward to when Daylight Savings time ends in the fall and I get an extra hour of sleep again.
As far as reading goes, I read day or night, dark or light. It doesn't matter!
What about you?
