How is it that some people can read like the newspaper or a magazine with the TV on and people talking nearby? I don’t read the newspaper because it’s just too much information to read. I’d rather watch the news to know what’s happening in the world. I can barely type this without having to look at the TV.
Darrin can sit there reading the newspaper with the news on the TV lol. I try to read my book and every little noise distracts me. If there is no noise then the silence is deafening and that is distracting.
I have ADHD so every little thing distracts me. I am able to read a book if I try hard enough to ignore all the little things but it’s hard. Especially when the ice cream truck goes by. The whole time I was reading the Harry Potter novels I was so into them that I was able to ignore noises but there came a point that I had to buy all the Harry Potter soundtracks and it made reading easier. I would try to hum the main titles in my head while reading, it would help me but I had to buy the soundtrack so I wouldn’t have to think lol.
I’m reading The Source of Magic which is the 2nd book in the Xanth series and I had to go outside today to read it because the TV in the living room was just too loud and the lighting in my room sucks so bad but then it started to sprinkle. Yeah I was under a roof but the rain drops were coming down so hard on the fiberglass roof it was too DISTRACTING! LOL
