The album is a great antology of classical and semi-classical music, with the best performers! Despite its lenght (which is great) it actually never gets boring. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some music can be good for reading. September 3, 2012
By dennis
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Originally, I was going to title this "music that can be ignored while reading. But that isn't quite correct. This music, unlike some, can not be ignored. Terrible music, can not. But this is not "elevator" music. Its some of the best, and unlike some Best 100 of so, and so, the selections are good music, that do not overpower, and act as a suppliment to reading. It does help to turn down the volume. My wife wishes I would do this all the time. And she is the one with the hearing problem.

I can't usually read with music playing. This recording changes that. It soothes me and allows greater focus. I hope there are similar compilations coming soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enhancing November 24, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I haven't thought about selecting music to read by, what a wonderful idea. I enjoyed the experience and even found it helpful to do computer work with the background music. Adding music with a tempo to keep you awake, has enhanced my reading experience! Thanks so much for offering this wonderful MP3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Music you don't notice but love December 19, 2012
By Sam
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was working two hours into my paper while playing this album (and others like it) on loop. When this particular album began playing, I looked up mid-way into it and really appreciated the atmosphere it created. I was a bit tired but found the music engaging and non-demanding enough to continue my project until I could leave off at a reasonable time with a reasonable amount of work accomplished. This is a great series, and I recommend it to anyone who must read and block out the world for a good hour or two.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Background Music November 2, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I enjoy this music collection. It provides the perfect backdrop for reading, study and writing. There are many pieces that are familiar and some that are not. The variety helps me focus. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calming December 9, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I enjoy reading, but don't like complete silence while I do so. Also, if I'm out in public reading, I get distracted easily by surrounding noises. Having this on my ipod has helped me enjoy my books even more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful
I tried this while reading. It is very good to keep focused on the story. I suspect that with headphones, a student in high school or college may find it useful as well.
