Musing Monday's is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading! This week’s question:
"Can you read amidst distractions? (tv, others talking, sporting events, etc"Yes, I can read while other things are going on around me. I don't always choose to do so but I can when I want to. I grew up in a house where the television was always on. I learned very quickly how to block out the TV and read my book. It drove my parents (most especially my father) nuts! My husband also likes to have television (or music) going almost all the time. And I almost always prefer a book; so most definitely yes, I can read with distractions.
Oh, and I quite like taking some me time and going off to Barnes and Noble or Starbucks to read my books. I lose myself in the story and the surrounding noise doesn't bother me. Writing is an entirely different story, though. I can't get any writing done amidst noise and chaos. I'm not sure why it's different for me but it is - and I'm off on a tangent. LOL
