Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading music…
Do you listen to music while reading? Does this change if you’re reading in or out of your house? Do you have a preference of music for such occasions?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
I rarely listen to music if I’m reading at home – though our house usually always has some music playing somewhere, even if I’m not really listening to it.
Outside of the house however, I usually always listen to my ipod when sneaking five minutes of reading. I go to work an hour or so early so I can read and listen to music in my car; I slip my headphones into my library bag if I’m planning to be there awhile; and I used to love my reading/music time on the bus.
As for preference, I used to listen to instrumental music – classical, jazz, or movie scores, but I found that to be more distracting than anything with lyrics so I swapped back. I’m not usually terribly picky with what I listen to; I just like a little background noise.
