Book Blogger Hop 8/6

Book Blogger Hop

Each weekend, Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop.  It is a great way for book lovers and book bloggers to find new book blogs and get to know each other.

This week's question is: Do you listen to music when you read?  If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I definitely cannot listen to music while I read!  I can't have the TV on in the background either.  I need it to be very quiet or I lose focus.  I am getting a lot better at tuning out my daughter's movies though!

If you have hopped over from the Mr. Linky, Welcome!  I hope you will stay a bit and look around. I review a wide range of books including (but not limited to!) urban fantasy, young adult, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, chic lit, cozy mystery, and some non-fiction.  I love getting comments but had to turn on comment moderation due to spammers.  I try to check in several times a day and approve comments quickly.

  10. When I was homeschooled, and after my sister had moved out, my house was soooo quiet. I got used to reading in utter silence but after a while even the silence is a distraction. Now I can read with a fare amount of noise, and I do like music when reading; however, Television shows are the most distracting.

  11. hey!
    Stopping by from The Hop! Depending on the book I need quiet but sometimes I'll listen to music.
    I'm now a follower :)
