I’m envious of readers who can read anywhere and under any conditions such as a crowded bus or on their living room couch while their children play loud video games. While I normally read in silence, I’ve recently taken to listening to music while I read. No, I’m not reading while listening to Metallica but I am playing classical or jazz music. Music helps me from being distracted and to stay focused. The Flint Public Library has a wide variety of music CDs to read by, as well as a subscription to a free music streaming service called Freegal. Freegal has music in all genres and several reading playlists! Happy reading!
