For a while now I've been hooked on the Book Notes series at Largehearted Boy. In it, authors create and describe a playlist of songs that in some way relates to a recently published work. Recent entries include:
- David Small's list for Stitches
- Frank Portman's list for Andromeda Klein
- Lev Grossman's list for The Magician's
Geez, another time suck for me. What a great idea. Not all books lend themselves to this, but a few definitely come to mind that I associate with certain music. Now I have something else to geek out about...ReplyDelete
Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate them.ReplyDelete
I actually leave the terms of the playlist up to the author. Some have listed music from their books, others music they listened to while writing, and even others have scored imaginary soundtracks to the film adaptation.
