This week's BTT question: What, if any, kind of music do you listen to when you’re reading? (Given a choice, of course!)
And my answer: Most of the time, none. Although I'm not really opposed to the idea: I like listening to music and I like reading. I just don't usually think about doing the two at the same time.
But if and when I do combine them, then the music has to be something that will fade nicely into the background. Jazz is usually my first choice, or "light" classical -- but nothing too raucous. Occasionally, I'll even listen to what used to be called "New Age" music while I read. Have to be careful there, though -- some of that "alternative" music puts me right to sleep.
