Do you Listen to Music when you Read?

I love to have something soft playing in the background when I am reading.  Today I have been listening to Cassandra Wilson.  Cassandra Wilson was born in Jackson, Mississippi on December 4, 1955.  She has what I call a unique, rich, husky, deep, voice that belts out some kind of heavy, warm country blues sound..  I remember reading somewhere years ago that when she first started singing in public, she was advised that her voice too strong and heavy, that she needed to lighten up.  I am so thankful she did not because there is something about that voice that cuts through those grays of heart and mind of mine to locate some elusive light spot.

  1. I usually listen to music when I read, especailly during my work commute and when at work. At home, I read during commericals.
