Booking Through Thursday: Multi-Tasking

Do you multi-task when you read? Do other things like stirring things on the stove, brushing your teeth, watching television, knitting, walking, et cetera?

Or is it just me, and you sit and do nothing but focus on what you’re reading?

(Or, if you do both, why, when, and which do you prefer?)

I multitask to a degree—anything that doesn’t involve my eyes, like watching television or walking, is fair game. I read digital books while I blow dry my hair (it, uh, takes some time) and I usually read while I eat; I’m always trying to cram in as much reading as possible into my day.

But I ultimately prefer being able to sit down and spend a few hours with a book, which I don’t really have time for during the week. Last weekend, I spend Sunday morning in bed reading Tigana, and it was utterly blissful.

  1. I definitely can’t blowdry my hair while reading, the noise distracts me. I almost always read while I eat though. I think we are all trying to get as much reading into one day as possible. Like you my favorite times are the quiet times that you get to spend with a book.

    Here’s my BTT Post

  2. I love nothing more than to do able to do nothing but read, though that has felt like a luxury these past few weeks. Most of my reading is done on my way to school and work lately, and I have to keep an eye out to make sure I don’t miss my bus stop.

  3. I’ll multitask reading. When I’m at work is one of the few consistent times I have to read each day, so when I’m having lunch or walking around, I’ll read.

    I’ve also been known to read while watching TV or waiting for movies to start at the movie theater.
