Booking Through Thursday: Soundtrack

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.


  1. I totally agree with you, if I have background music it would have to be what my kids use to call 'elevator music.' Very soft and no singing only background music. But if I have the choice I want peace and quiet.

  2. Soft music is good sometimes,

  3. You and I do have about the same answer. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I prefer soft music while reading.

    Here is my BTT: Soundtrack post!

  5. Great answer! I'm the opposite though, I always have to listen to music when I read. Love your blog! :)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
