monday

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme, hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker, that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ____, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Do you like something playing in the background while reading?


I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
My husband got me a Color Your Own Wolverine book from our local comic store!

It’s a coloring book so it’s not technically about reading, but I don’t actually care, it’s awesome.

Do you like something playing in the background while reading?
I actually try to keep something playing in the background during literally everything I do. I have a problem with ambient noises (e.g. leaves blowing, water running, etc.) triggering panic attacks so I typically have a tv show or music going at all times for white noise.

In fact, that’s how I know I’m reading a really good book. Because sometimes I’ll get so absorbed in a novel that whatever I have playing in the background can stop and I won’t even notice for quite some time.

So, yes, I like to have something playing in the background, but also reading is the only time I can have silence and not feel anxiety because of it. So I’m an odd duck…

    • Yes, that’s a crucial factor! It must be a show I’ve seen enough times that I almost have it memorized or else it can draw my attention if the book is not engrossing.
