Blog Hop (3)

Welcome to Book Hooked Blog!  For those of you who are here for the first time, this blog is pretty much all books all the time.  I read and review a wide variety (fiction, non-fiction, YA, memoir, etc, etc).  I also post pretty regularly on industry news and issues.  And I've been known to do a few fun giveaways!

Today's Hop Question is: Do you listen to music when you read?  If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I have to say that I don't typically listen to anything when I read.  I get very easily distracted by music, so I don't typically listen to anything while reading.  Occasionally I'll listen to instrumental music, usually classical, because I don't get distracted when there aren't lyrics.  I do require some kind of white noise to concentrate though.  I have a white noise App on my phone and I also keep a fan by my bed to make some kind of "music" while I read.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I can not listen to music or even have the tv on when I read. Background noise distracts me.

  2. I do listen to music when I am at work and on lunch reading. It helps get rid of the talking and other background noises here at work. I wouldn't say I am "listening" to the music its just there and I'm IN the book.

  3. Happy Hop Day! Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  4. Stopping by from the Hop. I see you are on the Nest. I used to frequent it quite a bit but haven't for awhile. Have a fantastic weekend.

    Hello, visting you from The Hop.
    I think the hop is a marvelous way to meet bloggers both old and new.
    I'm #8, Just stopped by to wish you a great weekend.
    This week my trip to the Hop is brought to you by the number 0.

  6. No music when I read, but I love reading outside so the sounds of nature could act like music I suppose, especially if the songbirds are a-singin'!


  7. Just hopped by to check you out.
    I'm not into reading with background noise either. Though I generally read while hubby is watching tv or the kids are practicing sports...
    Enjoy your weekend!

  8. As a kid we didn't have air conditioning so every summer I got used to the fan blowing on me and then I couldn't get to sleep without it's rattling sound. So, for a month or two into Fall I'd still have that fan blowing even though it made me cold.

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

  10. Heyy! Stopping by from the blog hop!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  11. Thanks for visiting my site earlier, thought I'd hop on over to yours. I just finished reading your post on Roman Polanski and Stephen King, very interesting :)
    I'm a new follower of your blog!

  12. I like silence. Beautiful silence. A little French music can be nice, too.

    I found your blog through Blog Hop. I'm glad I did.

    I am a new follower. I'd love for you to visit my blog and become a follower.

  13. Hi, I am your newest follower. I love your cat-kid. I have four. They are the best kids. Does yours talk back like a teenager? I do not listen to music when I read. I don't usually anyway. Maybe my ears are funny but it is too distracting either soft (what was that?) or loud (Yikes, I can't hear myself think!). My BF is always listening to music, or I don't think I would have noticed this about myself.

  14. Hi! I'm a new follower--just stopping by from the hop! As music goes--I used to have music playing all the time, but now I prefer quiet.
