I am not making good progress in Atonement, because I spend all my time on engineering. Lame!
A book I know at least 3 of us have read is Love is a Mix Tape by Rob Scheffield. I believe Dia has it at the moment... Maybe we can circulate this?
Blurb: "Music critic Sheffield's touching and poignant memoir of love and death will strike a chord in anyone who has used a hand-selected set of songs to try to express something that can't be put into words. A socially awkward adolescent, Sheffield finds true love as a college student in the late '80s with Renée, a "hell-raising Appalachian punk-rock girl." ... Each chapter opens with a song list from a mix tape made at the time."
I loveded this book. I laughed, I cried, you know. I'd read it again and post chapter-to-chapter if anyone is interested. Also, I feel that someone should make an audio companion so we could listen to the songs as they are on the tapes. I have no time for this obviously, but it would kick ass.
