★★★★ Novice

I am also having this problem. I'm tired of babysitting my sims to make sure they read books. Anyone know how to fix this yet?

I also have this problem, I don't know if it was there before the Vampires pack but that's when I first noticed it. Not really a solution, but I usually have my Sims sit down in their bedroom (where there aren't many distractions) and they'll read for a few hours there.

i'm still seeing this. and when they stop (or are stopped from) reading, they will more often leave the book on the floor than keep it in their inventory or returning it to the bookshelf. it's not only the tv, and happens with books from the skills and emotional categories, too.

So for you it's not just to watch TV as described here but generally ?

i initially thought that TVs were to blame. removing them does tone down the interruptions, but they're still noticeable and other things can (and often will) cause them.

 

also, since two other posts here weren't as specific (they mention wanting to avoid "distractions" and that Sims stop to do "something else") it didn't think it fair to make it all about TVs.

they still stop from time to time, especially with books they are re-reading. it doesn't even have to be the TV, it can be another Sim that's interrupting, or that they want to go hug a different Sim who's walking by, or whatever.

and the book will always be left on the floor. but at least they *do* finish books more often now.
