Reading Envy 155: Music Reading Recommendations with Thomas

Thomas and Jenny huddle up in the music nerd corner of the pub, trading recommendations for books that include music in all the best ways. We start out with a few non-fiction titles then move into novels. You'll also hear about an epic list of books including music, and a few books that didn't do as well as would have liked.
