The rules are simple. All you have to do is choose one book that you’ve read this year, or one of your favorites, or even a book that you’ve read for the readathon. Then, choose a song that matches your book. Post a picture/link to your book, and a embed/link your song.
One of my favorite “finds” of the past year has been Elmore Leonard’s westerns. I’ve read two this year, thus far. Leonard is becoming my go-to light read.
My musical pairing is Days of the New. Day of the New has always seemed to me to be what might happen if cowboys rocked. This remix of “Enemy” has too much swirvy bass and I don’t know what’s with the zoomy synth near the end, but the acoustic guitar is there and the lyrics are very Leonard.
Obviously, their most famous and more indicative song is “Touch, Peel, and Stand.”

I’ve been meaning to do this with a re-read. I have one on my list though I probably won’t get to it: Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis. Page 99 is all about a bright suburban morning…and Xanax and dead crows. Yep, the things I liked about this book.
