Nope I can't read if the tv or radio is on. I like it quiet when I'm reading. It help me to get into the story more.

Well..not to sound like I'm bragging but I can pay attention to both. Read and listen to the tv/to music. More often than not I'll revert all of my attention to the book, ignoring everything else though, heh.

Not at all. Its quite difficult for me to read while the tv is on. I cant even read while the music is on. I like reading in a calm environment like the library, park(in the morning whn there r not too many people arnd) and even in my bedroom.

there is no way that i can do it because i just get distracted easily and then i forget what i have just read. maybe i have ADD or something.

Yepp. It's a simple thing to do. Most especially if the commercial is still on.
