Reading is my first love in life, but rock and roll is a very close second. Both books and music have the ability to transport us to different worlds, so what could be better than reading books ABOUT music? In my mind, not much.

I know there are many other super fans out there, so I created two lists in Marketplace that feature some of our best nonfiction eBooks about rock and roll music. You and your patrons can travel to a land where The Beatles and the Rolling Stones are still a bunch of kids in England, and when CBGB’s was the haven for punk rock music. Revisit your “sad era” with books about The Smiths and The Cure and go underground with books about indie bands like The Replacements and Sonic Youth.

When you click the links below, the lists will show up as a Marketplace search result and you’ll be able to easily add them to a cart.
