Musing Mondays (July 12)

Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Every week a new question is asked. This weeks question: Can you read amidst distractions? (tv, others talking, sporting events, etc)
This is an Excellent question! My answer would have to be most of the time, no I cannot read when people are talking, watching tv or music is being played. I've never been to a sporting event but I probably couldn't read there either, and not because I enjoy sports. I really prefer not to have noise when I'm reading unless it's classical music, or just music without anyone singing. It adds a bit to my imagination, but voices etc. really harsh my mood and get into my head even when I really just want to read. On very rare occasions I've been able to block out noise but this happens once in a blue moon and no matter how hard I try I can't keep it for long. *sigh*


  1. I prefer the quiet. But, I will listen to soft music via headphones, to help me focus on the book more if there is alot of noise around. Here's mine.

  2. I am entirely different as I can read anywhere, anytime, anyhow. I am adept at blocking out all sound and have been known to read through an entire flight, an entire train ride, through an entire movie. I even brought a book to a boring baseball game a few years ago as I carry one in my purse 'just in case'.

  3. @stephanie: cool! I wish I could perfect reading with people talking around me. Although I can read on trains.


Don't hesitate to leave a comment I love hearing from you~! Because I am terrible at remembering to give out awards after people graciously give them to me, I have now made my blog an award free zone like so many others. I thank you for thinking of me though.
