I do at lunch during work, usually a book or homework. If I'm at home and alone, I'll bring my food to the computer and read that.

usually when I'm by myself...and usually at breakfast over the paper or something...otherwise, not so much.

I like to browse the NY Times on my iPhone while I'm eating. Portable, always have it with me, and it keeps me up to date on news. :)

I do crossword puzzles or Sudoku while I eat. It helps me eat slower for some reason.

Yeah, I multitask like crazy. Can't do just one thing at once. And if I'm not doing something else while eating then I eat too fast.

I can't eat and read a book at the same time, and it's even annoying to eat and be on the computer at the same time. When I eat I like to have conversations with people or watch TV. I am even one of the weird ones who has no issue eating in silence, with no one around and nothing to do. I tend to do this on my lunch break. I talk all day, it's nice to shut up, stop and just sit while I eat.

Don't do it when I'm with other people but I like to catch up on the news when I can.

If I'm eating by myself I always read either the newspaper or a book.

All the time, since I love to read! At dinner I don't though, that's when my family is home and I eat with them. :)

Absolutely! I can't stand to only do one thing at a time.

I read my Google Reader feeds while eating breakfast in the morning. I prefer watching something when I eat though.

Oh and if I eat out at a restaurant by myself, but only certain places.

Only when I am by myself at home, or in my office.

I read voraciously anyway. Ever since I was a kid, I read cereal boxes, newspapers, magazines, etc. while I read. Things that don't require much thought and are easily propped on the table; I'm not so big on reading novels while eating.

i always read while i'm eating...i'm doing it right now (eating lunch!) ... i do it when i'm eating alone only ... pretty rude to start reading when you're with other people ... like read the paper if i'm grabbing a meal alone at home or read the sugar sites when i'm eating lunch at my desk
