It's Hopping Time!


Question of the week: Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I actually
don't listen to music when I read, I have trouble concentrating if I do and reread the same sentence over and over again. Oddly enough though, I can read and watch tv at the same time and that doesn't bother me. I have no idea why!

A big thanks to Parajunkee and Crazy for Books for hosting the hop!


Don't forget to check out my giveaway for The Hunger Games trilogy before you leave!

  2. Stopping in from the hop/follow friday. No TV or music for me when I read. I'm thinking of making a Do Not Disturb sign for my door to put up when I'm reading :-) Have a great weekend!

  5. I don't listen to music when I read, but I think about books when I listen to music. Which is why I actually have based my whole blog on this concept - books, music, and the connections we make between them. It tickles me that this week's Book Blog Hop topic is about this!

  6. Thats me too! I can watch tv and read, well I look up every now and then but I definitely can't listen to music and read.
    Have a great day!

  9. Hopping by! I don't listen to music either. I only get to read about 15-30 minutes at a time, so there isn't a lot of time to get the music going!

    Hope you'll hop by!

  19. If the TV is on and my kids are watching I can usually drown out the show. If I'm the one watching, I'm not also reading.

    Happy Friday. Come see how I listen to music when I read.

  20. I'm not sure how it happened, but I wasn't already a follower. Don't worry, I corrected it. Now, proudly, a follower. :)

  21. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Very multitasking of you to be watching tv and reading at the same time, I can't do it. I love your list of upcoming releases!

  22. Hey! I got your email about now following my blog, and not being able to comment. I don't understand why you can't comment. I got an email from you, and someone else about not being able to comment. This makes me sad!!! What did it say when you attempted to comment??? Anyway! I am not following you as well!

  23. Just hopping by to say hello! Sometimes I can read while blocking out background music or background TV, but never actively do both. Although, I can pat my head and rub my tummy! (I'm proud of that accomplishment.) -Westie :-)

  30. Stopping by from the Book Blogger Hop! I'm a new follower and am trying to rebuild my own followers list after having to redo my entire blog over from scratch (still a work in progress) due to a malicious hacker attack. I'd appreciate any and all new followers and will follow back! Thanks for hosting this blog hop and helping us reach out to each other!

    Hugs~

  31. Hi!

    Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog.

    You read in silence? Wow! But you can read and watch TV at the same time? Me, I can't read without sounds and I can't read while watching. The latter is more distracting for me. lol.


    Cheers!

  32. Hey!

    I'm so sorry! I slacked last week and I didn't see your comment. I'm glad I went back and looked. You have a fantastic blog and it seems you read the same books as us which is fantastic :) I see you are reading City of Ghosts next. The book is beyond words amazing! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did. We are following you back. Can't wait to read your reviews!
