I like to walk while reading. I am wondering if anyone else does that too?I like to walk while reading. I am wondering if anyone else does that too? Harpreet #questionnaire
I do too!
No go for me. I can barely walk without running into walls, let alone with a book in my hand too lol.
I do too
I do too.
Do you walk outside while reading?
Yes ? I walk to my work in the morning whilst reading
Yeah… Sometimes when it’s not too noisy or crowded ☺️☺️
I used to! But I stopped doing it after too many close encounters with lampposts 😉
Nope I like to be as horizontal as possible
Yes! Love audiobooks, can read and walk the dog…
I take a book to the gym. It’s the only way I can get through a session on the stationary bike.
I do that at lunchtime at work
I can barely walk whilst walking (I’m VERY clumsy) so I think for me it’ll be asking for trouble ?
Laura I’m with you. Walking and reading would be a bad combined
I listen to books a lot so can walk doing so. But, walk and read, haven’t tried it but doubt I could. Good for you. ?
I have a friend who does that and never seems to have come to any harm. BUt personally I would not risk it.
All the time
Yes, occasionally a book gets left in the freezer…
That sounds challenging
I forced myself to stop after I walked into a lamp post
Lol! ? Sorry….but that’s something that I would do too. ?
walking into strangers in one thing…. lamp posts hurt!!
I do, but I’m indoors when I do. Audio books or podcasts outside.
Yes, but not actual print books, audiobooks. Definitely takes the boredom out of exercise, housework and car rides.
That sounds dangerous! ?
I’d probably need to seek medical treatment.
I do not think i could do it. Kudos to all who can!
Lol. I am a person who would fall in a hole, or trip. I like the idea of audio books for my walks, though! Then I can read even more.
I do that too.. Only in environments where I am safe and know the path well though. But gotta admit, the whole trying not to bump into people or things takes a bit away from the experience. But with some books, when the plot thickens… ??♂️?
No way! I can’t even walk and talk without tripping or bumping into something! ?
I do it all the time, it’s all about that peripheral vision.
That’s my answer!
I do it all the time at work. People always say “how can you see where you’re going?” Same way you do when you walk and look at your phone.
Lol. They ask me that even though I am reading on my phone when at work. WHILE they are doing something on theirs.
I’m from New York therefore, I need to be attuned to my surroundings at all times.
If I could do that I wouldn’t be so fat. It’s just too hard to follow the words while I’m bouncing around.
Always am learnt to watch for traffic while doing it.
Yes! People think I am not paying attention, but I am.
I use to walk home from school almost everyday reading a book. Many a tree branch was walked into that way ?
I use my kindle on the treadmill.
I couldn’t coordinate myself enough. I’d turn a page a walk into a tree.
I’m too uncoordinated! Lol
Audio books when I walk and I go longer.
I am too clumsy. I wouldn’t be a good walking reader.
Audiobooks has made this possible and without the hazard of walking into things which indeed I have done in the distant past while reading.
I just bought an arm band case for my phone so I can walk and listen to audiobooks or podcasts. Gotta get this butt in gear!!
I walk every morning for exercise. If I’m able to read at the same time I’m not working hard enough. ?
Sounds dangerous unless you’re “listening/reading”
I trip when just walking. I can’t even begin to think of how many face plants I’d take if I walked and read at the same time.
I would trip and fall. ?
I have done that! But now I’m older and out of shape, I fear falling. 20-year-old me would have been fine in a fall with the muscles and reflexes I used to have… ??
My librarian walks to work reading. I used to drive in the 80s reading. Interstate no traffic book on steering wheel eyes on road and words
I wouldn’t dare!
Hey I was in a new Lincoln, 18 and built proof
For me that would be asking for trouble. I’d hit something or hurt myself definitely.
Not with a physical book. I imagine myself walking into people, lamp posts, traffic, and more. Where I live – WAY in the country – it would more likely be a deaf deer, the river, or a steaming pile of goose poop. And in either place, I really like to hear what’s going on around me, so I guess that rules out audiobooks, too.
All the time on Treadmill.
ha, yes, at the elementary school where I work I’m often reading a book as I walk the halls
I was reading my kindle on the track during relay for life ?
I’m too clumsy. I’d trip on a dust bunny and fall I’m sure! lol
I used to until I started having to wear reading glasses…
I would likely die if I even tried.
Most pedestrian paths are also paths for runners and cyclists. One of the great hazards is someone moving in such an area with their head pointed down at their phone or tablet. You are traffic, and in traffic. Respect that.
LOL. You all have much better balance than me. I’d fall down or crash into something.
Yes on the treadmill!!!!?
Yes, I do, too, but we need to be careful. I walk in the forests we have nearby and once walked into a tree that had come down across the path. I now make sure to scan ahead.?
When I worked I used to walk at lunch time around and around the very very large parking lot and I always read while I did it
I wish I could! I walk into things when my eyes are straight ahead lol.
No, I cannot do such…plus I take notes oftentimes when reading so as to assist my memory later on. And, then I can reference these when making posts. I do think it’s awesome you can do this!!
Sometimes I make notes too. If I happen to pick that’s not worthy of notes I lose interest!
Too dangerous for me
me either, i cant walk and read…
i have to be sitting or standing… i can read a book while someone else is driving… usually with my sister,,,,lol she drives fast….
I couldn’t do it
