Blog Hop and Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop

Hello chups!
It's Friday again, and you know what that means! Time for some blog hopping and following fun!

(Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy for Books, while Follow Friday is hosted at Parajunkee's View)

This week's Book Blogger Hop question is...

Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?


Answer: No, I don't listen to music when I read! It makes it harder to focus on the book get get immersed in the story! When I do listen to tunes while reading on the rare occasion, the music always changes the mood of the book, usually in a not nice way! For example, if a majestic, touching heart to heart conversation is unfolding on the pages, and the stereo's playing heavy rock, then the whole aura of the book gets ruined! Do you guys listen to music when you read? What type of music?

  1. Hi, just blog hopping through. Happy Friday!
    I listen to music mostly when I write, not when I’m reading. I listen to Celtic and Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Best,

  3. Oh, your blog is so cute!!!

    I too find music a bit distracting and I agree that it can change the mood of a book.

    Happy Book Blog Hop

  7. I love silence when I read. Beautiful silence. Although lately I've found myself listening to French music while reading....Lovely, too.

  12. Stopping by from parajunkee's Follow Friday! I'm a new follower and am trying to rebuild my own followers list after having to redo my entire blog over from scratch (still a work in progress) due to a malicious hacker attack. I'd appreciate any and all new followers and will follow back!

    Hugs~

  14. Hi, Guys!

    Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog.
    I listen to music while reading. I have a ready playlist for reading. The music there are mostly not so distracting (so pop is not allowed!) so I'm pretty ok with it. :D

    Cheers!

  15. I'm just hopping by! I agree with you about music getting in the way when reading. I only listen to music and read at the same time when forced. :)

    Have a fabulous weekend and please stop by my blog if you'd like.
