However, I was reading Silence by Natasha Preston and I felt as though I shouldn't listen to music while I read. This book focuses on a girl who stopped speaking at the age of five, and I felt that because she was silent I should be to. I know that sounds strange but this book also has some serious issues and I thought it would almost be disrespectful to have my attention on anything else. In fact every time I picked up this book I consciously turned off any music.
I think that listening to music can enhance the world of the story and send the reader into a bubble so to speak. However, I am now questioning whether or not to change this view.
What I was wondering was if any of have ever felt the need to devote all of your attention to a book. I know that some people are dead set against listening to music at all when reading but I want to hear everyone's point of view.
Please let me know your opinions or if I'm a weirdo who over thinks things.
Bye have a nice day.
