This week, BTT asks a very interesting question: Do you multi-task when you read? And I guess my answer would have to be: sometimes.
Even though I try to avoid it.
I'm really not great at multi-tasking in general, and I certainly prefer not to do it when it comes to my reading. I'm at my best and most contented when I can concentrate on one task at a time. And when I'm reading, I like to have absolute quiet and nothing to distract me. I just want to curl up with my book and let real life slip away for an hour or two.
But we're talking perfect world here, and of course none of us live in perfect world (or in theory, where everything works perfectly).
So, yeah, sometimes I have to do other things while I'm reading. Or accept that those around me are doing other things while I'm reading. But as long as I can keep reading while the "multi-tasking" is going on, I'm not bothered too much. It's just when the extra activity requires me to put down my book that I get upset. And I don't call that multi-tasking - I just call it being interrupted.
