Multi-Tasking

btt button

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?)


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  11. I’m a definite multi-tasker. If I’m doing something “useful,” I don’t feel so guilty about my reading time!

  12. I rarely physically multi-task. But I do find myself multi-tasking with actual reading–with numerous “open” books being read at once. (One at night, one for the restroom, one for work, the latest one to fully engage me trumping everything else til it’s finished…etc.)

    I mostly sit or lay in bed and read. I can definitely read with noises around me, even the television sometimes, but I can’t walk or do chores while I read (unless it’s an audio book). I’m also pretty good at reading with lots of interruptions. I also eat my lunch and read and I also listen to audio books while driving to and from work.

  21. Anything that doesn’t distract my mind from the book. My answer is posted.

  22. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. Check out the link to find out more: http://thestoryqueen.blogspot.com/2011/03/booking-through-thursday-1.html!

  23. Yeah, I do multi-asking. I use to read while cooking, watching TV, eating, and surfing the internet. I prefer to sit quitly reading my book, but I don’t always have the time to do so.

  24. Slightly late, but better than never!

    I’ll do anything while I read🙂
