Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.
This week's question is:
What, if any, kind of music do you listen to when you’re reading? (Given a choice, of course!)
I usually don't listen to music while I read, because I'm easily distracted. If the book is a bit heavy in either content or language, I'm sure to start paying attention to the music instead of the words on the page. Sometimes I like to have some background music on, but it has to be something "light" (hard rock won't work!) or maybe instrumental (film soundtracks for instance). Songs that I don't know that well are good, because then I don't start singing along. :) And the lyrics have to be in the same language as the book I'm reading. Try reading in English while listening to a song in another language you know. Very confusing.
Usually it's just better to skip the music and get lost in the book. :)
Do you listen to music while reading?
