Do you read and listen to music at the same time? — I find it quite cool :DDo you read and listen to music at the same time ?— I find it quite cool 😀 Adam #questionnaire
Yup, all the time.
I can’t lol
I can see why ?
Lol what do you mean?
This is what you tend to say, right ?
Ah yes lol it is
No. I love my silence.
But when you’re in a crowded place, how do you read in this case ?
Idk if it’s the same for Jill, but when I’m in a crowded place, I can easily tune out the noise because it isn’t directed towards me..whereas music in your ears is directly for you
You got it right 🙂
Like Pamela said. I prefer to read in silence, but I would rather read in noise then not at all. I read in pulic all the time.
Yes, music or TV is usually on.
yes I do…..all the time
No, I find that listening to music while I read tends to distract me from the book so I prefer to do them separately.
Yes, I do it too
It’s motivational 😀
i can also watch a film/ tv and read a book at the same time
How can your eyes have two functions at the same time ?
Dang..nice! I can read during commercials but that’s about it lol
It’s weird. I used to be able to do that and can’t anymore. I don’t know why I lost the ability. Maybe I’m going senile. ?
I can’t concentrate ???
It can be sometimes for me too
Yes I do
I prefer silence.
Yes. Plus coffee. And that jerk of a cat sometimes.
I listen to an audiobook to help me read And then I have TV on in the background
Only instrumental. Can’t have words interfering with words?
Although it’s with words you can just enjoy the instruments and focus on the reading..
This is my way.
I can’t. I like absolute quiet to read. Maybe ambient noise like ocean sounds or thunderstorm, but nothing rhythmic and definitely no lyrics. I wish I could, it sounds so nice in theory. My concentration breaks easily. ?
yes I love it!
I love music so much, I cant do both. Because I end up singing to the along to whatever is playing, which takes my concentration off of the book, lol. I would love to be able to do both, lol.
So may this power be in you ?
Yes, sometimes tv, sometimes music, any setting really.
Depends on the book and the music. Sometimes, yes, but if I need to concentrate on what I’m reading, I have to pause the music.
I like music on when I’m reading
I do if I have the sheet music in front of me. Oh you didn’t mean read music. Oops
I like to focus on the book so I prefer to read in silence.
I used to. Not so much, anymore.
No. I can read with the tv on though. Music is very distracting to me .
I way prefer reading when I’m listening to music
Always — love the combination
I do. They are my favorite things to do…. I mostly listen to Broadway music. I must admit, music can be distracting.. I’ve been known to put my book down and sing along….. ?
Nope I’m can’t multitask like that! Lol
Depends what I’m reading. Like Rhea I may find myself singing or up and dancing!
All the time!
I try but then I get too caught up in the music and have my own mini concert
Lol that’s why I can’t read while listening to music ?
I like that ?
sometimes, sometimes I sit in a coffee shop and listen to all the useless talking and mange to read a book at the same time.
Instrumental only. Like many others, I will start singing along otherwise.
Sometimes I will start humming along with the instrumental songs.
@Melissa I am a hummer, too. Sometimes, I him when there’s no music playing. ? Dare I say yet another reason we’re best friends. ?
Depends on what I am reading, sometimes I do listen to music while I’m reading, but if the book requires a bit more concentration, then I prefer silence
I read and watch tv at the same time.
I can’t. I must have quiet to read.
I have so many books that I have read in specific times in my life when i was listening to particular bands and when I hear the music again it takes me right back to the book it’s awesome!
I really enjoy it as then in later years the songs I was listening to at the time take me back to the book I was reading it feels a bit like a soundtrack. But I do chose music to suit the genre I’m reading as well
No I can only do one or the other.
It depends on my mood. I actually prefer the tv on. It makes for a good distraction for me.
Usually, I listen to my books these days, so I cant do both atthe same time ?
Nope. I can’t concentrate with music or sound in the background. I need it quiet.
