Multitasking – #BookBloggerHop

the-book-blogger-hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy on Ramblings of a Coffee Addict.  This week’s question is:

“Can you read and watch TV or listen to the radio at the same time?”

Check out the linkup to see everyone’s answers!


 

I both can and cannot do this, depending on what I am reading.

Right off the bat, I can say that if I’m sitting on the couch with a novel or with a non-fiction book, and even if my husband is watching something I’m completely disinterested in… no, I can’t focus.  I’m constantly distracted.

Contrarily, if I’m reading blog posts, yes.  I can do both.  It’s more because it’s easier for me to look up and down from the article to the television, depending on what’s happening.  I can shift my attentions back and forth more easily when I do not need to be completely submerged in a novel.

That said, I can’t write and watch television at the same time!  As I’ve written this brief post, I’ve been utterly distracted by The Magicians!  We all have our strengths and weaknesses!

What about y’all?  Can you watch television and indulge in your novels at the same time?

  1. I can easily block out the noise from the television or music on the stereo if I am reading a good book. I can also blog and watch television at the same time, but I do miss things on the show–so it has to be one I don’t care if I miss a detail here or there, especially if I am reading blog posts.

    I hope you have a great week!
