Booking Through Thursday - Soundtrack

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?

There is a link to a site where I get my music, you can get a lot of good instrumentals there, which sounds like what you would be looking for.

Sometimes you just need something in the background which doesn't even consciously register.

Yes, background music has to melt into the background for me...

I can tune anything out so I don't bother listening to music.
