Booking Through Thursday



Do you multi-task when you read? Do other things like stirring things on the stove, brushing your teeth, watching television, knitting, walking, et cetera?

Or is it just me, and you sit and do nothing but focus on what you’re reading?

(Or, if you do both, why, when, and which do you prefer?)

***

When I'm really into a book, I like to sit in my living room and just concentrate on the story. If I'm not so into a book, I'll read while the TV is on.

  1. I can't do anything except listen to music when I am reading! I gotta turn to Audio books! Only way to keep up with reading!

    Here is my BTT: Multi-Tasking post!

  2. I can't do that. I can't even listen to music while I'm reading.

  3. That would be perfect but I wouldn't accomplish so much reading or otherwise. There are some books that call for complete and undivided attention and those are the ones that I will not allow anything else to interfere with, no multi-tasking. I need another one of those!

  5. I read while watching tv too. But I get so into the book by the time I look up the tv show is over and I have no idea what happened.

  6. Usually I prefer quiet these days...the TV muted. But I can read with cartoons (grandkids) in the background. They don't distract me!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Peace and quiet is always best! The television is a difficult housemate for me.

  8. I never even thought about whether or not my interest in the book played into this question. Excellent post!
