Hopping

It's time for the weekly book blogger hops again! A great opportunity to meet new bloggers and say hi to old favorites.

Check out the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books

Here's the question of the week: Do you listen to music as you read?

I'm Alison. My blog is now officially two months old! Certainly a short time compared to many bloggers, but I feel like I've come a long way in two months.

I am a huge music fan - particularly Indie rock, folk, and bluegrass. I often listen to music while I'm reading but I try to stick to low-key albums that don't interfere with my concentration. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Iron & Wine, The National (High Velvet), Oh My God Charlie Darwin, Jakob Dylan (Women & Country), Death Cab For Cutie, and Sarah Jarosz.

  1. Hopping by! I don't listen to music while reading. I only get to read about 15-30 minutes at a time, so there isn't a lot of time to get the music going! Hope to see you blogging for many months!

    Hope you'll hop by!

  2. I've hopped over, too! I can't stand listening to music while I read. I need total silence for some reason!

  3. Hi, just blog hopping through. Happy Friday!
    I listen to music mostly when I write, not when I’m reading. I listen to Celtic and Pirates of the Caribbean.

  5. Hi Alison! Just visiting your blog for the first time. I am also new to blogging about YA. You can find me at http://evergreenjuniorhighlibrary.blogspot.com/

    I don't listen to music while reading, but I do watch television while reading (because I also have a TV addiction).

    Looking forward to reading more!

  10. Hi Alison, just hopping by! Wish I had your powers of concentration but usually listening to music distracts me when I'm reading.

  11. Iron and Wine is definately mellow and good for reading. I like The National's Boxer the best. And DCFC is a good band but I don't think I could read to them. Just hopping by! Happy Friday!

  13. Stopping by from parajunkee's Follow Friday! I'm a new follower and am trying to rebuild my own followers list after having to redo my entire blog over from scratch (still a work in progress) due to a malicious hacker attack. I'd appreciate any and all new followers and will follow back!

  18. I love Death Cab For Cutie, they're one of my favourite bands! I can't really listen to music while I'm reading though, I find it distracting.

  20. I listen to and love most of the music you mentioned, Death Cab, Iron & Wine in particular. I can't really listen to them while I'm reading though. I'd tend to want to sing along, and I don't think that works while reading. :)

    Hope you can check out my hop.
