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.
