Day and Night (BBT)

“I couldn’t sleep a wink, so I just read and read, day and night … it was there I began to divide books into day books and night books,” she went on. “Really, there are books meant for daytime reading and books that can be read only at night.”
- ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Milan Kundera, p. 103.
Do you divide your books into day and night reads? How do you decide?

What a neat question! I've never thought of it that way, but there are very few books that I will read regardless of time. I do tend to read mysteries during the day and fantasy or YA at night. I always read non-fic during the day and the same for magazines. I never read them at night. Devotionals, my Bible and the boxcar children are the only ones I read at any time on any given day. I don't really decide it that way, I guess I just prefer to read the happier stuff before I sleep and to keep the thinking-required-when-reading books for when I'm awake!  ^_^

I don't divide my books by day or night. Here is my answer for Booking Through Thursday.

I like to read fantasy at night as well. I think it's easier to become immersed in another world that way.

@ Abel: Yes, it's definitely easier to slip into a different world at night. Things just seem to mesh together a little better.
