While we are discussing the word/music interface, it's been a matter of some discussion whether it's best to read (or indeed write) listening to music. Some people enjoy nothing more than to read a book in church-like silence. For others a book, some tunes and perhaps some liquid refreshment are a perfect combination.
Anyway to celebrate music for and by book lovers here's our stab at a literary spotify playlist . Please add you own ideas but a) make sure they are good tunes and not ones with "book" in the title b) and don't dump entire artist/albums onto the list just because you like them...!
