if so what kind of music do you listen to, while reading manga?

Does it depend on what manga your reading?
if that is the case list the manga then the type of music like this:
EX
Naruto- hip/hop
Rurouni kenshin - nujabes
you get the picture.

Yeah, but i think my case is a little special or weird. I think some people can relate, but it's a little extreme ^^
When i find a manga i like, i stop a few chapters in to find a fitting song, then i listen to it throughout the manga over and over. In other words, it's the only song ill listen to while reading that manga until i'm at the last chapter. I'm doing this because next time i hear that specific song, i will remember all the things i enjoyed and felt while reading the manga (Seing the highlights like in a amv). I'll also remember my surroundings, what i ate or what my mindset was at that point.
So if in 10 years i ''accidently'' listen to one of the songs i used for manga reading, i'll remember everything

Type of music doesn't matter to me

Typically the osts. Also only instrumental music nothing with lyrics as that would make reading distracting.

I am afraid not. I just enjoy reading it in silence I guess. A bit boring but o well.

Nope, for some reason reading them in silence makes it more enjoyable.

I know this is an old post but I was reading the first volume of "Your Lie in April" as well as "Kagerou Daze" today and remembered seeing this thread awhile back. For me it varies from manga to manga, as well as if I'm reading a bunch of simulpubs back to back or a volume.

For Your Lie in April I thought it would be appropriate to play the classical music featured in the manga. I played this at a pretty high volume. Unlike most times when I need to keep it somewhat low to concentrate.

For Kagerou Daze I found the soundtrack to the music it's based on at Beats music.

I imported the OST to Fairy Tail from Japan because I love the OST so much and listened to it while catching up with that manga, and also when I read the simulpubs from Weekly Shonen Magazine.

For other manga I will listen to OSTs from the anime adaptation, or other music that may or may not fit the tone of the manga, but sometimes I just feel like not listening to anything.

i find it difficult to read manga and listen to music, though i do like to listen to a podcast or something of the like while playing video games, usually when grinding in an RPG or playing a multiplayer game.

I listen to the music from the anime for whatever I'm reading if there is one, otherwise I refuse because I won't pay attention to the manga.

I usally listen to Anime OST while reading manga..
And my playlists have every categori so I can use anything for every manga categori.

And for manga with an anime adaption the choice is obvious.

Buuut I'm what some people called "Nerd". So don't take my words too seriously.
