Are you a multi-tasker? Do you multi-task when you read? Do you 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?)
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
Yes, I do sometimes multi-task while reading. I've been known to eat a meal with a book glued to one hand, eyes on the pages and only occasionally swivelling toward the meal at hand. (That was pretty much before children came into my life, though.) Sometimes I check my email while reading, or watch a tv program while reading. In this last instance it truly depends on the book and the tv show. If either are truly rivetting, nothing else takes my attention. Oh, yes, and I have stirred a thing or two cooking on the stovetop while in the other hand is my book.
Sometimes books are so captivating that menial chores get forgotten or, if I absolutely must cook or eat, it'll be with book in hand. Come to think of it, I need a captivating book like that. It's been too long since I've done double duty or done without thanks to a riveting read. Suggestions, anyone? (Don't worry, the children are all grown now and my waist won't mind a missed meal now and then;))
