The rainy season is here again with its dark clouds and cold raindrops. While the stormy weather might not be fun for the average outdoor person, it has umpteen advantages. It comes as a great relief from the excessive heat of summer, planting and cultivation is at its best, and we can say goodbye to sunburns and hello to cold chills.

For the Book nerds and Bibliophiles, the season is just the best time of the year.  Summer reading may be showy with its sun rays but the cold weather may just make reading a lot more swell. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Great Weather

The rainy season is just cool and cozy. Rather than sweat out few pages of your book, you can curl up in your duvet and flip through countless pages, relaxed as ever. Stuck indoors in a big comfy chair with a sweater on is hardly ever a burden; a book may just be the best ‘hanging in’ partner, while the rain floods. The Cold never bothered us anyway!

2) Drink pairings

Reading is always best ‘served’ with a drink. Hot Coffee, Tea or a shiny glass of Red Wine…and a book creates one of the best feelings possible. Most of these pairings are just impossible to try out during summer.

3) Yes to Bigger Books!

Summer is loaded with too many activities and as such, it takes extra effort to pull off reading big books. Hardly will anyone choose staying indoors to read, over a pool party or hanging out with friends. Hence, the rainy season is just the best time to deal with those big books that would normally scare you.

4) Focus

Fewer parties, sleeping Kids, and generally less disturbance would give room for focus. Reading may require as much concentration as possible and the summer may just not cut it. Hence, the calm rainy season would keep you accomplishing more of your already set reading goals.

5) Read out without sweating

Reading during the wet season does not always mean reading indoors – as rain does not necessarily fall every hour. And since the weather is cool, you can read outdoors in a calm environment without sweating and feeling drained and stressed out.
