I usually prefer to read without any noise or distraction but that hardly ever happens with my kids around. In fact, I can read with pretty much any background noise. Thanks to my ability to ignore my kids while I read, I find it’s become a challenge to concentrate on my novel in complete silence. Amazon recently rolled out Amazon Prime Music, which is similar to their Prime Instant Video streaming service.
I’m pretty excited about Amazon Prime Music. To be honest, I don’t order a lot of books from Amazon, preferring to shop at used shops. However, I love their video streaming service and I’m pretty excited about the new Amazon Prime Music. I can stream it straight from my computer, my Amazon Music app on my mobile devices or on my Kindle HDX.
While you can listen to any music in the Prime Music collection, Amazon has curated playlists based on your mood. What I like the most are the playlists for reading. Here’s a sampling of playlists for readers:
- For Reading: Historical Fiction
- For Reading: Crime Fiction
- For Reading: Epic Fantasy
- Classical for Reading
- For Reading: Adventure
If you’re writing, there’s even playlists to help you concentrate or get in the zone:
I used to make my own lists on Spotify, but I just haven’t had the time. I’d rather pull up a curated list than waste my reading time putting one together. Plus I’m lazy. Ha!
What music do you listen to when you read or write?
If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can try out Amazon Prime Music (and their 2-day shipping perk) with a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial.
