This Week’s Question
Do you prefer to read in a quiet or noisy setting?
Submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer.
This is a great question and, honestly, it depends. Usually, I can read a book anywhere, whether or not there is noise in the background. Sometimes, I actually prefer to have some kind of background noise, like an ambience room, when I’m reading something that is particularly atmospheric. I feel like it adds to the experience!
But it fluctuates. There are days I can have YouTube videos running in the background while I’m reading and it doesn’t bother me at all. There are other days where I need complete silence to read. One thing I’ve noticed is if I’m reading a book that requires all of my attention, then I don’t want any background noise. If I’m reading a book that is just a fun read that I don’t have to think about too much, noise is fine. If I’m super into a book, an explosion could happen right next to me and I wouldn’t notice 😂
So, as you can see, it really depends on a lot of factors! I think, overall, I prefer to have background noise, but I can go either way.
