Book Blogger Hop

Dear Blog,
it's Friday. It's the Book Blogosphere.  Which means the Book Blogger Hop (yay!) , hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy For Books.  Every week, as well as the Linky, those participating suggest questions for you to answer in your Hop post.  This week the question is:

Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

My answer: I don't tend to intentionally listen to music and read at the same time.  This is mostly because I'm one of those people who likes songs with meaningful lyrics, and to my mind they're the best part.  if I'm reading, I can't listen properly to the words, and if I'm listening  to music then I sort of get distracted from the book.  That said, I quite like classical music (a teenager who likes classical music? Who isn't the fictional imagining of an author?  Can this be true? *gasps*), so occasionally I put a bit of  Carulli or Vivaldi on my iPod speakers and listen to their music.

Anyway.   Enough of my ramblings.  Hop forth, book bloggers!

  3. Hi, just blog hopping through. Happy Friday!
    I listen to music mostly when I write, not when I’m reading. I listen to Celtic and Pirates of the Caribbean.
