Booking Through Thursday - 10/3/2011


Do you multi-task when you read? Do other things like stirring things on the stove, brushing your teeth, watching television, knitting, walking, et cetera?

Or is it just me, and you sit and do nothing but focus on what you’re reading?

(Or, if you do both, why, when, and which do you prefer?)

My answer:
I multi-task! I walk. I sing to music. And these days, I read while driving(that is when Im stuck in traffic jam and the car is not moving!). Most of the time, I read while waiting for something and that something can be anything. hihihi I have even finished reading few chapters while chatting on the phone. ;)

Anyhow, nothing beats sitting down in a comfortable position in a comfortable chair with soothing instrumental music in the background! =) I definitely prefer THIS!

I prefer it too!! Did you hear about the man who was pulled over for reading while driving? Apparently the officer had lights and sirens going trying to get the driver`s attention but the man was so immersed that he didn`t hear or notice for some time. (This was in the news this week). I`d like to know the title of that book!

I keep books in my car for traffic jams and long waits at railroad intersections (I live near a switching station, so stops feature in my weekly drives in town), but I can't imagine reading and DRIVING at the same time!

My answer is here. :) I like reading with music, too.

Not sure if the HTML works, so here's the link proper:

Oh yes, good music can definitely set a good ambiance for reading.

I can't multi-task when I'm reading. I can watch TV and be on the computer, but when I'm reading, I need peace and quiet. My answer here is here

I can't do anything except listen to music when I am reading! I gotta turn to Audio books! Only way to keep up with reading!

Here is my BTT: Multi-Tasking post!

I can understand trying to multi task, there are only so many hours in a day :)

Here's my Multi-Tasking (Booking Through Thursday) post!

I'm a muli-tasker, too!

Reading with music is a nice thing to do. Keeping books in the car for emergency purposes is a clever idea. :)

One thing I can't do, read while talking on the phone.

I like to carry a book when I run errands, especially if I have to go to the DMV, or to the doctor's office. Reading while waiting is good.

Here's MY BTT POST

mostly I like a quiet place to read.

At first I didn't think that I multi-tasked when I read, but then when I really thought about it I guess I do. I eat and read. I also mute the commercials and read while watching TV. I drive to work and listen to a book too. So yes, I definitely multi-task and read.

I multitask too, but I don't think I'm quite as bad as you :-)

Reading while walking is way to dangerous for me. Reading while watching tv - that I can do.
