Music in my life is as random as books. Just like I don’t have a fixed reading plan to tackle my TBR pile, I don’t have fixed playlists to get me through the day. Genre-wise I’m not as concerned either, as long as I enjoy the music. I tend to shuffle a random collection of songs. If I’m in a particular mood, I pick an album or artist. More often than not, that leads me right back to the Backstreet Boys.
Other than that, I have a huge preference for acoustic music, so I did compile playlists containing covers — one for acoustic and one for instrumental. When I’m reading I like to plug in the instrumental covers, so I can concentrate on the words I’m reading.
Although, during commutes, I pick whatever music can drown out the noise of the surrounding people. Nothing pulls me out of a book quicker than someone screaming into their mobile phone or children running around and squealing in the subway.
Do you have any playlists you specifically listen to while reading?
