The Soundtracks Behind Your Favorite Books

Illustration for article titled The Soundtracks Behind Your Favorite Books

Books have typically missed out on getting the soundtrack treatment that movies have. But more books than ever are getting their own soundtracks now, and that's a good thing.


Today, we want you to create a soundtrack to go along with a book of your choice, whether an old classic or a new favorite. You can go with single album that would go along perfectly as the soundtrack of a book, or you can take more of a mixtape approach and pull together a collection of songs from all over. You can pick a book about music or one about something else entirely.

Put your playlists in the comments now — and tell us just why you picked the songs that you did.
