Songs for Book Lovers

Although this is a literary festival we couldn't stop music seeping into things. On Saturday 5th, we have Edwyn Collins providing some songs for Grace Maxwell's reading of her book, and on Sunday 6th, Phill Jupitus & friends will be playing tunes and discussing music writing in general.

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...!
