Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week's BTT asks . . .
1. What do you think of reading aloud/being read to? Does it bring back memories of your childhood? Your children’s childhood?
2. Does this affect the way you feel about audio books?
3. Do you now have times when you read aloud or are read to?
I'm sure I was read to as a child; however, I don't remember it. I remember always reading a book in bed. I just LOVED books and would choose to read a book over anything else. That being said, I don't think I'm a fan of being read to. I prefer to focus on the words and read it myself. It's much to easy for me to be distracted by the sound of someone's voice or what they're wearing or how they're speaking as opposed to what they're actually saying. With respect to audio books, I've tried them on long trips in the car and I just don't like them. Again, I am too easily distracted. When I read, I want to see the words. I sometimes read aloud, I think to regain focus on the words if my mind is wandering elsewhere.
