Musing Mondays (1 of 3)




Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Today's question:
Can you read amidst distractions? (tv, others talking, sporting events, etc)
My Answer:
Absolutely!!!  If I am "transported" into the plot, I don't hear anything around me.  My family thinks it is funny because they could be talking to me and I am "not here".  It does frustrate them, at times, when they have to call my name a couple of times to bring me back to reality.  I usually have the tv on all day, low volume, tuned into a cable news station, just in case there is some breaking news that I might be interested in.  I can't read without background noise or I will fall asleep.

Unlike you, I prefer peace and quiet.

I've had to read with distractions over the years, but lately, not so much. It depends on what I'm reading and the kind of distraction...

I agree. if the book is good, nothing distracts me.
It is not that I do not mind the noise...I actually need it. I am afraid I am one of those TV on, as background noise, all the time folks. I read, write, everything with the 'distraction'.

Me too! Distractions are no problem.

If I couldn't read with noise in the background, I would never get any reading done!
