Booking through Soundtrack

btt button

What, if any, kind of music do you listen to when you’re reading? (Given a choice, of course!)

I prefer soft music while reading. Symphony music is better. It helps me concentrate on my reading. I can block out outer noises that way.

I really prefer silence and being alone while reading :)

I used to listen to Mozart while I was studying, but I can't while I'm readnig because I hum along - LOL!

Thanks for stopping by earlier. :)

Interesting answer. I prefers silence, though. Here is my BTT post.

I prefer silence. Sometimes it's tempting to blot out noise by using music, but the combination is just too much for me. Also, if it's music I enjoy I get distracted.

Amy said...

Great answer, I'm like you, I like to listen to music while I read! :)

Yes, I'm a fan of "background music" when I'm reading, if I have any music at all.

If I have the choice I prefer peace and quiet while I read.

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog. As far as I am concerned 'Silence is Golden' when it comes to reading. :-)

LibrarySnake said...

Interesting, hadn't thought about it that way.

Symphony music is good, as long as the strings don't over-power too much - I get too caught up in the music and forget about the reading.

Mervi said...

I usually prefer silence but when I listen to something, it's usually classical.

Shirley said...

Symphony music, eh? That should be good in the background. Thanks for stopping by earlier.

The reason classical music is my reading standby is that is is very harmonious -- it's hard to imagine reading while listening to rock!

Cindy Swanson said...

Soft music in the background is OK, but I prefer quietness when reading!

Hope you'll stop by and say hello...

I prefer complete silence when I'm reading.

Symphony music is good. Which composer do you usually listen to?

I prefer absolute silence.. I manage to get after 11 PM. :-)

I love some Mozart symphonies. They're not as intense as others. But piano music, like Debussy and Chopin, are the perfect background for reading to me. But I guess it really needs to fit the mood of the book, or I'd rather have silence.
