I have always been able to listen to music while reading. To be honest, it has never occurred to me that I could ever be bothered by it. There are some things I can’t listen to while reading, such as Hamilton because I’ll usually only want to focus on it, but otherwise anything in my ears is okay, no matter the ambiance it creates. However, I do that when I’m outside, so when I’m at home I don’t usually put music on.
Last year I discovered the joy of ASMR rooms and it changed my reading life forever. That’s why I wanted to tell you all about my favourite ASMR sounds to play while reading!
