Do you listen to music while you read? A lot of people will say that it distracts you from the story. Some people will say that it depends on the type of music. Music without lyrics is good for some people. A few of the people may say that it depends on the book. I personally like listening to music when I read.
The music doesn’t normally distract me. Normally it helps me focus on the words in the book. The music ends up as background noise that I kind of ignore.
The only exception to music helping me focus on a book is when it’s a book I really NEED/ WANT to focus on. Most books I don’t NEED to focus a lot because I still absorb the story pretty well. The times that I really need/ want to focus on the story the music distracts me. It fails me when I need it most but is there when it’s not important.
If I’m not listening to music and I pick up a book to read I will not put on music. The only reason I have music playing while I read is because I don’t want to stop listening to it. The music is just so good that I never want it to end (I now fall asleep with my earbuds in because I don’t want it to end. I have an addiction or something).
