wdtbwsbuttonfinal3Friends, August is here! That means Back To School is almost upon us! Where did the summer go? I want it back!

Anyway, today’s topic is: Do you listen to music while reading? If so, what kind? Do you have a playlist?

Be sure to stop by my friends’ blogs: Nite Lite Book Reviews, Books Unbound and The Reader’s Antidote to see what they have to say!


My answer: YES!

I read with music on, and I usually do have a playlist already cued up.

I can’t listen to music with words though because it’s too distracting. I try every month or so to listen to an album of an artist I like and I find myself not really reading, but singing along instead! Obviously, this slows my reading down so I have stopped doing that.

Usually I listen to film soundtracks or classical music.

Some of my favorites are:

Inception soundtrack
Emma soundtrack
A Series of Unfortunate Events soundtrack
The Dark Knight soundtrack
Amelie soundtrack
Pride and Prejudice soundtrack
Beethoven symphonies and piano sonatas (I love Beethoven)
Anything performed by Jacqueline du Pre

and many more!

 What do you listen to when you read??
