This looks like a good place . . .
I turn off the radio and definitely no TV. I need quiet to focus. When I was an engineering student at the UW in Seattle, I would go to the library to study, but someone or several people would always be talking or conversing in loud "whisper mode". I had to find a quiet place or I couldn't focus on my engineering problems. I never could study with noise around me. I know some people who seem to require music or background noise of some type – that is just plain weird to me.
