Booking Through Thursday: Soundtrack

Booking Through ThursdayBTT asked: Do you ever try to pair music with the book you’re reading? Play the movie soundtrack while reading the original book? Find mood music that fits with your story?

My answer: No, I don’t like listening to music while I read because I find any noise (music, TV, etc.) distracting when I’m reading.  I don’t find that mood music enhances the reading experience.

I’ve never even thought to seek out the movie soundtrack to a book either.  I do like some soundtracks but never thought to combine them with reading.  Plus I’m not a really a huge music fan.  I do like certain songs but I don’t listen to music non-stop throughout the day or feel like I’m missing out on anything by not listening to music very often.  So maybe that has something to do with it.

Do you find your love of music carries over into your reading time?  Or does music enhance your reading experience?  What are your favorite songs or soundtracks to go with certain books?
