Thurston Moore's Mix Tape: The Art of Cassette Culture is a collection of love letters to the mix tape. If you predate mix CD's, this book will fill you with nostalgia for not only the music, but the artwork of mix cassettes. The Sonic Youth member has help from artists, musicians and film makers in sharing actual tapes both made and received. A beautiful book (shaped like a cassette tape), I highly recommend it to music fans.
My next book will be Nick Hornby's latest novel, A Long Way Down.
