Booking Through Thursday 9
Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme which asks a bookish question which you have to answer.
This weeks question is:
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?)
Usually I am one task kinda girl. If I'm reading then that's all I'm doing. But I can muti-task if I have to. I can watch the TV and read at the same time, it just depends on the book and the show.
I have been known to occasionally eat and read at the same time but my parents drummed that out of me pretty good when I was a kid. According to my mother the dining table is not the place to read and even though I'm not a kid anymore it's hard to break my mum's rules.
I am notoriously clumsy and have on several occasions tried to walk and read at the same time and found that it was the best way to injure myself, so I gave that up.
But no matter what I'm doing after a little while I always seem to abandon the other tasks anyway and fully concentrate on reading - it's just the way I am.
That's all for now.
