I didn’t realize this was a hotly contested thing until I mentioned it during a Riveted Editorial Board meeting and everyone gasped, but I love listening to music while reading!
See below for real life footage of everyone else at the table.
Surprise! I prefer it, actually, and have done it for as long as I can remember. To this day I can’t hear Overprotected by Britney Spears and not think of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (I know, it’s weird). It’s probably because I’m one of those people that sees scenes in a book like I’m watching a movie. If you haven’t tried listening to music while reading, I suggest giving it a try! It’s not for everyone (obviously) but I love it. I even make playlists for my upcoming books when I find a song that perfectly fits!
Anyway, without further ado, here is a list of some of my favorite songs to listen to while reading!
Songs to Listen to While Reading
Disclaimer: I have an eclectic (kind of weird and random) taste in music (but that makes it easier to find the perfect song to go along with whatever I’m reading)!
