Welcome Blog Hoppers

Book Blogger Hop

For the uninitiated, every Friday Crazy-for-Books hosts the “Book Blogger Hop, “a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on.” It’s a great opportunity to learn about and explore book blogs that may be new to you. I’ve found many, many great blogs by participating in The Hop.

I hope you’ll take a minute to look around and to leave a comment. Happy Blogging!

Question of the Week: Do you listen to music when you read?

This will be a short answer for me: no. I like it quiet when I read. I’ve tried everything from classical to New Age to rock, but none of it works for me. Too distracting!


  1. Hi there again,

    I’m hopping by to share some thoughts on music. I do read to music, sitting on the lounge at night, whilst the rest of the family watch TV. To block out the TV, I play music on the iTouch (not iTouch – not iPod cos I hate that stupid little wheel thing!).

    I listen to everything from classical Indian ragas, through chill out lounge, jazz, folk -even Madonna and Lady Gaga.

    I used to not be able to listen to music as I read, but for some reason as I’ve got older, that’s changed.

    However, if I’m reading something for work (a professional journal) I can’t concentrate with music on and I have to have silence.

    Kinda strange, but then, that’s me!

  2. Happy Friday. Come see how I listen to music when I read.

  3. Hello, just stopping by from the hop. I like the look of your blog. Have a good weekend.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog! I like your blog and I just subscribed by email. Looking forward to more great posts from you!

  5. I get so distracted by silence. Crazy, I know. Happy hopping!

  6. I find music too distracting while I am reading.

  7. Hi there, visiting you from the Hop. I can never do without silence. Some books *need* to have a complementary soundtrack. Something in the background to keep me going.

    But if needs be, I can read in silence.

  8. Of course I don’t want to have my reading spoiled by music –or my music spoiled by reading.
    I think it is so important to try to concentrate on what one is actually doing…..

  9. I enjoy listening to music while I read, especially when I’m riding in a car. I don’t know how it works, but the music in the background helps me from getting motion sickness.
    When I’m at home, I can go either way.
