Book Blogger hop and Friday Follow




Hey Everyone,
Happy weekend and welcome to my blog!  As always I am excited to meet new bloggers. Please leave a comment and your URL so I can return the visit. Check out my blog new design by Larissa and the new meme Hometown Tracks-Author Spotlight.  Oh and I have a button now, how cool is that!  Feel free to grab it if you like my blog.  Also please enter the Laura Ingalls Wilder giveaway, it is part of my Hometown Track feature.  You need to be a follower to enter. 

Jennifer's question this week is:
Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?
No, I cannot read with music on.  My mind tends to focus on the words in the song and then I lose the words on my page.  Music doesn't work for me.

  1. Have you tried listening to music without actual singing? The lyrics always distract me in songs, so I've switched to listening to classical or movie scores. It actually works out a lot better. =)

    I dropped by through Follow Friday and I have to say that I am in lust with your blog - especially the background! I am now a new follower. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I'm popping in to say that I love silence when I read. Beautiful silence. Although lately I've been on a French music kick....

    I've just become a new follower. I'd love to have you stop by my blog, too.

  4. Hopping on over to say hello! I can understand how music can be distracting. Even though I keep the volume on low, sometimes, I get annoyed and just switch it off!

  10. I listen to music about half the time when I'm reading. I have to be a the right state of mind to be able to process both the music and text. I usually go for tunes without many lyrics though. It really depends on the type of music.
