Booking Through Thursday: Multi-Tasking
March 10, 2011: Do you multi-task when you read? 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?)
My answer: It depends. If I'm reading on the subway then I am just reading (unless people are talking WAY TOO LOUD, then I have to put my IPod in to drown them out). If I'm reading at home though, it could go either way. If I'm really into a book I usually zone out and won't even respond to people talking to me, never mind doing anything else!! If I'm not really into a book or if there's is something on my mind (like baby stuff!!) then I might get up every once in a while and do stuff-usually google whatever I'm thinking about, or check facebook or my email. Sometimes I'll read while the TV is on, but that's usually if someone else is around watching something I don't really care about.
What about you?
