I've been reading a fair bit recently, and I like to listen to music while I do. However, I occasionally get distracted with the music and my comprehension of the paragraph/section may turn out choppy.

What I'm looking for is music that isn't distracting or that changes a lot. Stoner metal usually works well to be honest, because it's slow paced and doesn't change much.

I usually have to listen to instrumental music when I read.

Scale the Summit, Animals as Leaders, etc for metal

And I listen to a lot of aggrotech/EBM as well. Gives a good atmosphere and trance-y state of mind to read with. I love it.

Oh, Agalloch works amazingly well I've discovered.

Brian Eno's Discreet Music & Ambient 1/Music for Airports are currently my go-to reading albums.

It's a derivative of psychadelic, trance, and ambient electronica.

Oh this, this x 1000.

Or an NIN, really. Listen to The Fragile in it's entirety while reading a decent book. Puts you in a different state of mind. At least for me.

about 6 months ago when I was in Florida for Christmas, I read the first half of the last Harry Potter while listening to NIN, Agalloch, and various EBM/Aggrotech stuff. Wasted hours doing that.

It also helps if you just sit outside in an area with no bugs, where it's quiet. Or maybe I'm just one of those fags who likes this kind of stuff.

Old jazz does it for me. Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Bix Beiderbecke, etc. Or old delta blues like Robert Johnson or Skip James.

smooth nonvocal jazz music. Slacker Radio has a station devoted to that, its very relaxing and I play it while reading, playing video games, cooking, and driving. Scale the Summit comes to mind as well. Both of their CD's are amazing, for almost every occasion. Piano music is nice as well. The piano collections of the final fantasy series are something to look into

Try the Post-Rock Genre as well as Doom/Funeral Doom MEtal. One I can definitely recommend is God Is a Astronaut.

i listened to Bach's cello suites (just over two hours) while trying to study math earlier today. Relaxing and very good music for that sort of thing, but math is still ****ing hard as shit and makes no ****ing sense to me

seriously, im asian and this stuff is bullshit, **** school

Sometimes I love reading while listening to music, other times it's really distracting. Tom Petty's usually pretty easy for me to read to, though.

Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Vince Guaraldi, Cal Tjader, Luiz Bonfa, Joao Gilberto. Just the ones that immediately come to mind. It's pretty loungey/coffee shop-esque music. I fucking love it.

I may be a bit of a nerd, but I really like listening to film soundtracks while reading. The Lord Of The Rings soundtrack is a particular favourite of mine.
