Usually not. Only because by the time I get a chance to read I'm usually in bed at night. I do have a bottle of water with me.

I never do unless I'm really into a book and can't put it down. Happened while I was reading the 6th Harry Potter book. It was released at midnight and I didn't put down my copy until I was done. Unfortunately I was eating during the chapter Harry was writing I must not tell lies and it appeared on blood on his hand. That stopped by eating soon after.

Well, I read while I eat breakfast and while I eat lunch (on workdays). Sometimes the eating gets in the way of the reading though. At non-meal times, I just like a nice cup of cocoa or a mocha while reading.

I like taking snacks while reading and probably push it down with a nice juice

I do! My favorite times to read are during breakfast with a cup of coffee & whatever I'm eating, or at lunch.

I can't really multitask. :) Reading while eating doesn't work for me.

If I have a snack in arms reach while reading, I'll eat it without noticing until suddenly I've eaten five pounds of animals crackers....

So I try not to eat while I read.

Always - I usually make some hors d'oeuvres like smoked salmon and creme cheese on bread or bite size anchovies/ smoked salmon/ grilled tofu with a cup of tea.

I do, sometimes if I'm really into a book and can't put it down.

No, I don't like reading while eating because I get distracted especially when my attention is completely enveloped in the book and this affect my appetite for the food.

Nope, I don't like to eat while reading. I like reading in bed, and hate the feeling of crumbs or any other food particles in bed.

Its sounds good. But actually eating while reading is not good. Because it will ruined your concentration on study. But if you feel hungry while reading, you can take some dry fruits like almonds.
