Yes, no music, nothing.
Silence would be pleasant, but I've learned to tune out my surroundings when reading.
I become deaf whenever I'm reading, so it doesn't really matter
Yes. Distraction makes me read things twice.
No. But if it is quiet I get more reading done.
Ha hahahahaha - I have kids, there is no such as quiet. It's almost gotten to the point that silence is a distraction from reading.
No, I don't mind hearing some kinds of background noise, when reading.
Not necessarily. Once i'm involved in a story, I can tune out other distractions pretty well. Now, technical reading is another story.
I have read more books in coffee shops than any other environment.
