Book Blogger Hop (1)

My first book blogger hop! Hosted by the lovely Crazy-for-Books.

ABOUT THE HOP:

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question comes from Chelle from The Prairie Library!
Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I do sometimes listen to music while I read, but I make it a rule that it has to be purely orchestral music, a.k.a music with no words. I feel that if the music has words, I have trouble concentrating on the words on the page! My favorite reading tunes are movie soundtracks from Hans Zimmer. His work is simply amazing!

Just popping in via the hop to say hi and welcome! I can't listen to music with words while reading or I start singing the song in my head and have to read the same sentence over and over again. Glad to have found your blog, I'm a new follower!

Hopping by to visit and follow! I'm the same way with most music--if there are words, i pay attention to those words and they get all mixed together with whatever I'm reading. :-)

I'm the same way you are about music with words ... which is why I mostly listen to movie scores, instrumental music, classical, etc. Sometimes, I even take it one step further and I read reviews about the particular book I'm about to read and try to get a feel for the atmosphere of the book and pick the music that fits. It's obsessive, but it makes the feel of the book even more intense.

I'm a new follower now, too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! =)
