Do you listen to music when you read? That's the topic of the week for the Book Hop at Crazy for Books. Most often I don't--I like the silence so I can immerse myself in the world I'm reading about. Sometimes, however, if my husband is on a business call, or the kids are especially rambunctious, I might counteract the disruption with music of my own.
So, when music is called for, there is a wide range of music that fits the bill--depending on my mood. Leave me a comment so I can return your visit, and have a great weekend!
Ah, I love The Weepies! I answered a question on Formspring the other day that went something like: "which song would you listen to if you could only listen to one song for an entire month?" and I chose "All This Beauty" by The Weepies. Such a great band - beautiful music and an awesome vibe.ReplyDelete
Stopping by from the blog hop - I love your review of Mere Christianity! It's one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
Hello, stopping by from the hop- I'm now a follower!ReplyDelete
I got so bored in the movie but Once has some great music. Nice choices although I only recognize three. lolReplyDelete
Came by from the Blog Hop. I see that you are reading the Newbery books - you need to come visit a blog collective where we are also reading and reviewing them! Newbery ProjectReplyDelete
Hope you will have time to visit me at LibrarysCat Book List or Holocaust Resources!
I too use music to drown out other distractions while reading!ReplyDelete
I’ve given you an award. You can collect it here!
I like silence. Beautiful silence. A little French music can be nice, too.ReplyDelete
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.
Hopping by to see what's new - I'm already a follower. Love the album covers!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comments, I'll be returning your visits!ReplyDelete
Roof Beam Reader--I agree! The Weepies are great: relaxing and energizing all at the same time.
Julie--thanks for coming by. Mere Christianity made me want to read more of C.S. Lewis' nonfiction. Didn't know what I was missing out on!
Amy--so nice to meet you, hope to see you around. :)
Chelle--there's something about the energy and passion in the music that sucks me in, although I do have to be in the right mood.
Library Cat--thanks for letting me know about the Newbery Project, I'll check it out (and visit you too!)ReplyDelete
booksploring--why thank you, so sweet! I'll be right over. :)
readerbuzz--I'm glad you found me, I will definitely check out your blog and see what you're up to. I agree that French music is lovely.
Janna--thanks for coming over to drool over great album covers with me. :) I'll be over for a visit shortly!
I'm stopping over from the blog hop... I know I'm crazy late (the new one starts up tomorrow already!). I was glancing through the old list at Crazy-For-Books today, saw your blog title, and had to check it out. I'm glad I did! You have a great site... and as a side note, I loved Once's soundtrack, too!
Have a good day,
