How do you read?

Hey guys and gals,

I was thinking about how I have to have a song I listen to while I read a book and only that song. So the majority of books I've read have a theme song. For example everytime I hear "It's gonna be a good night tonight" I picture scenes from WINGS. I also prefer to read curled up on my bed or outside on my porch. What about you guys how do you prefer to read. If you like to have thme songs to let us know some of them. I think it'd be fun to try to read someone elses way. Do you rush through books or take your time?

Thanks

Tay

Re: How do you read?

Yeah, apparently doing anything on your bed besides sleeping throws off your sleep cycle =/

I usually go to B&N to read in one of their comfy armchairs...and if I ever get bored I can go pick up another book :smileyhappy:

Re: How do you read?

I can read anywhere (except in the car) while listening to anything. Cuz when read I imagine everything in my head to where everything just fades away. But I prefer to read at home on the couch with my feet up on the foot rest.

Re: How do you read?

I read with a book. Lmfao sike nah xD

I usually read in my bed. And the only music I use is if the book was a movie and it has a soundtrack. I'll have that playing low so that it's not to loud while I read the book. I also love reading in places I never been to. New places for me and especially in the car. xD

Re: How do you read?

Oh yeah I forgot to mention I have to have my door locked...that drives me nutts when people bother me. Especially since most of the time they scare me cause I'm so into my book I don't realize they've come into my room:smileyhappy:
