Get your bookworm on with a rotating roster of, um, bookworms. Including Jenna Todd from Time Out Bookstore & Kiran Dass from Unity Books, bringing us a different music-related book to talk about each week.
Jenna's in Memphis but Ian's here to provide Piece of Mind. Or be yr Powerslave. Or... you get the picture. Enjoy as our two resident musicians (Ian and Mike) talk about a book written by a musician about being a musician: Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson's powerful and particularly toilet focused tome What Does This Button Do?
Wellington author Megan Dunn is getting all meta and riffing on Ray Bradbury's classic novel about the end of reading, Fahrenheit 451, in Tinderbox - an exploration of literary culture and the struggle to make sense of life in the twenty-first century.
New year, new resolutions and Jenna's got just the book to jumpstart your creativity/productivity matrix. Compiled by The Atlantic's Joe Fassler, Light the Dark features authors musing on their rituals, processes and inspirations. One of the everyone's who think they've got a novel in them? Prove it.
Allowing a Kiran rare Loose Reads: Phoner Edition seems only fair at this time of year - bookstores are swamped. Still, that means we get the freshest picks from the publisher carton like this week's music scene tome from Sam Knee, Untypical Girls: A Visual Survey of Women in Independent Rock.
Jenna's read _so_ many books this year, she's plum forgotten what she's reviewed on air. (Fair enough.) Still, never hurts to go through the choice picks of the year when the holidays are looming. Presents, anyone?
