Good morning…and welcome to another bookish event: Booking Through Thursday. We share our thoughts about books, reading, and those things in life that affect our reading.
Today’s Thoughts to Ponder:
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!)
Oh, yes, I do wish they would pick a time-frame and stick to it! In fact, I do recall a time way back in the day when they didn’t switch…something to do with saving energy.
That didn’t last, though. And here we are again…It seems like we just changed the time!
There are some additional reasons why I don’t like the time changing: my numerous clocks!
Then there are other clocks…in the office, in the bedroom, and the phone clocks. A clock on the VCR…yes, I still have one, in addition to my DVD player…lol
I especially don’t enjoy changing the collectible ones, because I have to take them all down, change the time, and reposition them on the wall. Using a ladder!
But aside from that….I do like having more light at the end of the day. So my vote would be to have daylight savings time all year long!
What about the rest of you? How do you roll on this issue?
