Thursday at My Bookshelf


What, if any, kind of music do you listen to when you're reading?

I usually prefer quiet so I can totally immerse my senses in my reading.  However, I do have a couple CDs of classical/easy listening music that I will listen to time and again.  I keep the sound down low so it is complimentary background music.  I also like to go sit by the pond/waterfall to read.  It's very soothing to relax there with a great read!

Do you listen to music while you read?

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly bookish event, hosted by Reading Between Pages, open from one Thursday to the next.  Anyone can participate!  

The rules are simple:  A theme will be posted each week on Thursdays
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you  are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)

This week's theme is "male"

 From Reflections of a Successful Wallflower, page 45:
Mark was the most beautiful man I'd ever seen.  He was thin....Intelligent, quick, very verbal, very bohemian and talented....Also he was very boyish, and made no attempt to hide it.
Join in with this week's fun meme and share your quote from your current novel.  Please leave a comment with a link to your Theme Thursday and/or Booking Through Thursday so I can return the visit. 


  1. I prefer soft music while reading.

    Here is my BTT: Soundtrack post!

  2. I hope the attraction is mutual!
    Great choice for this weeks theme.

  3. Nature noises are perfect for relaxation. I wish I had a pond or waterfall near my house!

    Here's mine for this week:
    Double Feature - Booking Through Thursday and Theme Thursday

  4. That description of Mark was made for this week's theme - perfect! A wonderful title for a book too - hope it's a good one!

  5. And just in case you can't wait:


  6. What a great segment for this weeks theme :) I like it!

    I haven't posted my BTT yet, it'll be up tomorrow, but I almost can't read with complete silence! Is that weird?

    Mark isn't my type at all, but I hope the narrator can find happiness with him. ;-)
