how do you read?

I can read anywhere.  Give me the right book, and there could be a circus setting up around me and I probably won’t even notice.  Restaurants, cars, airports, public parks, in bed, listening to music, in front of TV — it really doesn’t matter.  As long as I’m enjoying what I’m reading, I’m more or less oblivious to my surroundings. 

My husband is a different story.  He prefers to be in a quiet environment — his home office, a coffee shop — with his headphones on.  To really focus, he listens to instrumental music while he reads.  Reading and music are inseparable to him; in fact, his headphones are usually sitting right next to whatever book he’s currently working on. 

So what’s your style?  Do you have a favorite reading spot?  Can you shut the world out just by opening your book, or do you get distracted by your surroundings?  Do you – can you – listen to music while you read, and if so, any certain style?
