Book Blog Hop V

At some point I'll come up with a more created Blog Hop title than that.  But most people have already used all the good puns (is there such a thing? to paraphrase Sports Night) so for now this will do.

We have another blog hop this week hosted by Crazy-For-Books.  This week's question is: Do you listen to music when you read?  If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I do the majority of my reading during my work commute and I always have my headphones in, though I'm hardly paying attention to what I'm listening to.  The music is mostly to block out the noise of other commuters.  If you're curious my iPod is a mix of punk, ska, show tunes, classic and folk rock and then random songs here and there, in case the previous mix wasn't quite random enough. 

If I'm reading at home in general the TV will be on but I'm awful at focusing on one thing at a time so it, like the iPod, is mostly just background noise.

  3. I'm popping in to say that I love silence when I read. Beautiful silence. Although lately I've been on a French music kick....

    I've just become a new follower. I'd love to have you stop by my blog, too.

  5. Except for the ska, your playlist sounds like mine. I didn't mention the show tunes or folk rock. I figured I had rambled enough already.

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