I like quiet when I'm reading. But if music helps you write all those wonderful books, keep listening, Jill! I'm looking forward to reading It Had to be You.
I prefer quiet when reading and studying.... But different ppl prefer different environment!
I really like the Kelly Clarkson and Pink songs, but not necessarily when I'm reading.
Believe it or not...I like noise when I read. I think it comes from being raised with 8 siblings! The house was almost always noisy!!
I find music or background noise sets my reading pace. I also find it helps me focus exclusively on the material at hand.
I sometimes have music on in the background when I am reading... but tend not to really hear it because I focus on the book.
I do like peace and quiet when reading and my daughter said recently she remembered I had a bookmark that said, "SHHHHHH! I'm reading" when she was younger. But, a good book will grab my attention and I could read anywhere anytime if enthralled. If I do listen to music, it will be instrumental... no words... and usually jazz.
I love listening to music-anytime, anywhere! Different songs create different moods, so I can easily see how listening while you write would be inspirational.
I rather have peace and quiet when I'm reading, BUT ... if that's not possible, I just zone in on the book and ignore the sounds around me. That can be dangerous but ... reading is soooo much fun. Your book sounds great. Best of luck with it.
I usually don't listen to music when I'm reading books, but I often have the TV on and there is plenty of background noise including music. It doesn't bother me if it's not too loud, since I get so engrossed in my reading.
hmmm. I usually listen to NPR all day, and when I choose music, it's new grass, blue grass or classical - it was fun listening to your choices! how did you find these artists? Now when I read the book, I'll hear your music in the background - kinda nifty.
i like music background i find it helps me get into the book
Yikes! I don't think I know one song on your play list. I love Kelly Clarkson but am more of a Cyndi Lauper/Cher/Bette Midler type of gal, so that dates me. I don't listen to music while reading. I generally just like listening to music when in the car.
Yes, I love all kinds of music and books too. Wow, your new
Love music but not while I'm reading.
I need quiet when I read.
I love music, but don't listen to it while I am reading.
Love music while I'm working, doing housework, eating breakfast and
I haven't had a chance to read your book yet, but if that's the playlist that corresponds to your book, it sounds like it will be a good one!!!! I'm looking forward to having a good book to kick off my Summer on the right foot, and this one should be just the ticket!!! I love the cover, too!! Congratulations on your latest book!!!
i normally do not listen to music when I am reading, but have it on often. I love music. In fact, I was listening to Lifehouse yesterday while cutting the grass!
I love listening to music :) love the play list!
Music, the melody, the lyrics all have their own stories and the images they put in my head. I think it can add to a book, enhance the emotional discovery of what lies within the pages. Thank you for the playlist, I love the choice of songs.
If the book is very interesting, I can block out other sounds, but I prefer to read in a quiet place.
I prefer quiet reading too. So sorry....
Ohh what a great choice for playlist! Those are awesome choices. But when I read, I prefer quiet to concentrate on my characters.
Love you picks! Boys Like Girls are great. Adore Pink and Kelly. Plain White T's-- *SWOON*
Like the playlist. However I enjoy reading outside or curled up in the
I also like your playlist, but I prefer quiet while I'm reading.
I like silence when I read, or as much of it as I can get.
Love your play list very good songs... I can read any where
I always wonder what motivates a writer to writer and especially love to know what types of music people like.
I actually have most of that playlist. :-D I love Lifehouse!
Great choices for the playlist, I think it suits it very well.
I love audio books! Thank you so much for the listening preview!
I like to read when it's quite,with no distractions at all.
I don't play music when I reading a book. When I play music, it is usually when I'm doing mundane chores around the house like mopping, doing laundry, cooking, and washing dishes. I sing along with the songs are played.
When I read a good book, I tend to block out any noise around me. I love music, but I usually wait to listen to it when I can focus on the music.
Sometimes I listen to music while reading, it really doesn't bother me. I love Pink, she has some great songs.
I would be totally distracted. I like the quiet to
