love is a mix tape

As long as I'm talking about books, I actually read one, a gift that I took my time getting to. It's called Love Is a Mix Tape: Life and Loss, One Song at a Time, by Rob Sheffield. I knew nothing about it beyond the author's name (and since I enjoy his writing on music, I figured to like the book). I won't spoil it for you ... I'll just say that I thought it would be a fun, even frivolous, look at the world through a bunch of mix tapes, but the book is much deeper than I expected, in an emotional way, very moving and a wonderful tribute to a person and a relationship. I recommend this one, even if you don't love Pavement.

I completely agree...I read the book a month or so ago (and posted about it as well), and my reaction was very similar to yours.

Yes, I saw that you'd written about it, and promptly ignored you until I'd read the book ... I'm spoilerphobic, even about biographies :-). You pretty much said what I thought!
