A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
I thought of using waves or other environmental sounds. I mean, I can read about a space battle in a Sci Fi novel and not be distracted or feel the mood ruined by the sounds of nature. Somehow it feels different when listing through a headset. But maybe waves would fade into the background as well as white noise.I'm a one-media-at-a-time geezer. If I read I read, if I listen I listen.
In the OPs situation I usually use an app with shut out other sounds-sounds, like train cabin, spring woods etc.
Or I put down the book and listen to music - for travel I prefer classical baroque or 50ies/60ies jazz.
