Book Blogger Hop January 27

 The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @ the Ramblings of a coffee addict. . Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This weeks question is: Do you prefer to read in a quiet or noisy setting? (Submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer))

I actually don’t like sitting in silence. It makes me feel uncomfortable so I generally have the radio or some music on whenever I am reading. I think it stems from childhood when my parents always had the radio tuned to a music station or had records playing. I don’t actually listen to the music if I’m reading and often couldn’t tell you what was playing but it’s nice to have it in the background.

I do find it really hard to read while the TV is on though. If my husband is watching something, then I will have to go into another room to read as I find the sports commentary or dialogue in a film really distracting.

What about you? Do you need a quiet place to read.

  1. When I’m in the car I always have the radio on. That comes from childhood on long car trips where my parents always have the radio on.

    I perfer to read in a quit setting but I can read when there a lot of noise.

  2. I like some background noise whenever I read, but lately I’ve found I get too distracted if it’s music because I end up tuning into it too often

  3. I’m not very picky – I can read anywhere, regardless of noise level đŸ˜‡ I’ll simply tune out whatever is going on in the background. However, I would never purposefully turn on music with lyrics/other audio with text while reading because once I show the slightest interest in that background noise, I will inevitably get distracted and forget about my book instead đŸ˜‚

  4. I don’t mind complete silence. I read pretty good with the TV on, as long as it’s not something I’m interested in.

  5. I feel similarly. My parents always had the TV on growing up, so I don’t often read in total silent. I like ambient noise like a coffee shop sounds video or fireplace sounds. I have trouble reading when my husband watches TV, though. Too much distraction!
