Do you munch and read?

I have this bad habit of eating while reading. There are times when I open a bag of chips and munch while I read. Or, have a mug of coffee or hot chocolate with a few chocolate chip cookies while reading. Of course I don't do this while having breakfast, lunch or dinner because I know that dad would really be irritated. lol! How many among you munch on something while reading?

Not usually. I seldom snack so chances are not high that I would be snacking and reading.:P

Oh, I actually do the reverse as you. I like to read while I am eating! Breakfast - read papers. Lunch/dinner - if no TV, then read a book.:P

I don't like to eat while reading nor read while I eat. If I wanted to read the newspaper in the morning, I do it after I have my breakfast. Even when reading a book and I want to munch on something, I just stop reading for awhile, turn the tv on and munch.

Hi there! I have that habit too. I like eating while reading a book. Most of the time, it is hot chocolate that I sip while reading or potato chips.

I usually have a drink around. Rum or whisky or my favourite coffee. It does make it better to have a favourite near you while reading. It enhances the experience and keeps you comfortable.

I never do that. It is not fair. In our community both the things are godesses. Food is godess Lakshmi and books are godess saraswathi. You cannot worship two godess at a time. They need to be worshipped seperately. Secondly, eating consumes energy. Also reading consumes energy. Body and mind will not be able to concentrate on two things at the same time.

Aah when I am online i have a bowl of chips or bickies by my laptop too for munching on. Not a good thing to do. I have tried swapping it with oranges and apples though (not quite the same I must admit LOL). Baby carrots work for me though!

I do that also. It is reading and eating that I can do altogether. Even when I am infront of the computer, I am munching something, but I see to it that it will not affect my computer or the small pieces not dropping into my computer. Its nice doing that right.

I do but then I have been known to read for a whole day and still do when I can, which isn't often these days, so you need to eat and I won't put a book down just to eat. Crisps are the best as you can read and dip into them and any kind of drink will do, altho I do like a nice herbal tea when I'm reading.

That's one of the times I eat the least. I'm bad about snacking in the evening while watching tv.
