Do you listen to music while you read 🤔?
I can’t because I love music too much and will start singing instead of reading 😭
Yes! I do that too 😂
I can’t read without music
What genre do you listen to?
Mostly alternative when I’m reading
Yesss it’s the best! I love creating playlists for certain book series
No I can’t focus if there’s any kind of noise around me 😂
I only listen to music if I have heard it a bunch of times or that doesn’t have too much stuff going on in it. Otherwise, I’ll end up paying more attention to the music than my book. The three albums I listen to are either Dirty Computer by Janelle Monae, Save Rock And Roll by Fall Out Boy, or Hot Fuss by The Killers.
Lol, funny story about Hot Fuss is that I found one of the songs from the album in a book and fell in love with it. It’s usually the album I listen to the most when reading.
Thanksl ! I’ll look into it.
If you do, you should check out Dirty Computer on Youtube. Janelle made a 45 min video of her whole album. It’s a really great piece!
No I try to have total silence. I get distracted easily.
Same. Sometimes i listen to those relaxing songs with no lyrics 😁
Yes. I get distracted if I dont. Then if it’s a really good book I’m taken away into the book more and later when I hear the songs I’m taken away again.
No I actually like quiet
Yea but im so into the book i dont even hear it 😂 if i do then i know its a waste of time trying to read
Most of the time, unless I’m struggling to get into the book or it’s particularly complicated
sometimes but i can read with or without music 😊
No. It’s distracting.
I used to listen to audiobooks at the same time 😊
Game of thrones soundtrack while reading an epic book 😋
I listen to really peaceful music like josh Groban or Susan Boyles. I think the style I like is called “operatic pop” classical music would be good too.
Sometimes. I definitely can listen and still read. But with 2 little boys my days are filled with enough noise lol I like my reading time to be in complete silence!
Not when i read. Although i can read while things are going on around me. I do write with music on though
I often do. I have a YouTube playlist of progressive electronic music for reading.
I love silence when I read 😊
It depends on my mood honestly. If I can’t stand the silence I will put on some light classical music to play softly in the background.
Sometimes but it has to be music without lyrics, like the GoT score, or Inception score is one of my favorites. Lyrics distract me from the book and make me wanna sing along lol
I list to background sounds from YouTube, sometimes. I’ll cast the Slytherin common room, pagan music for fantasy books(because I boss at nerd life), and storm sounds.
I make playlists for each book. Music that reminds me of the story. I love doing that
Oh my God! I do exactly the same ♥
Not typically, but if it’s one of my really moody days then I’ll have classical playing in the background. 😊
I like to have either my kpop music playing or something on tv as background noise
I can listen if there’s no lyrics. I read renegades to a nice song by Chris zabriskie “I am a man that will fight in your honor” went perfectly with the book. But I’ve heard people listen to minecraft music or animal crossing stuff like that.
yes I have a playlist called “Noises for Reading” and it’s just a bunch of acoustics. I feel it fits the aesthetic.
I cant listen to music, but I do like having the TV on low in the background! The noise and lights from the TV are soothing to me haha… In most cases its my husband playing video games 😂😂
If I do it has to be something I don’t normally listen too
I cant. I’ll get up in the middle of a slipknot song and have a mosh pit by myself. Let’s just say my music is not “calm” to others
Sometimes, but that’s mostly just if I need to drown out other noisy around me, or if I’m by myself somewhere and really don’t want to be bothered lol
If I’m reading for enjoyment no. But if I’m reading a textbook yes
Sometimes but only instrumental.
sometimes. When there’s a song that fits scene in the book or if there’s a song the characters are listening, i’ll play the song while reading.
