Here is the Monday combo for this week:
Do you listen to music while reading? Does this change if you’re reading in or out of your house? Do you have a preference of music for such occasions?
– It depends. If I am upstairs, then I do sometimes because the TV is on too loud and I can’t concentrate. At least with music, I can drown out the voices. If I’m downstairs, I listen to music as well but it’s mostly classical and it helps me concentrate. It’s mostly classical I can listen to, but sometimes I listen to my own mp3 player and it’s my own mix of music. I prefer classical though.
