Love is a Mix Tape!

So last night I finished reading Love is a Mix Tape....I strongly suggest any music lover out there read this book it was amazing .......Love is such a strong feeling and such a wonderful feeling and anyone who knows me knows that I relate anything im feeling to music so this book was perfect for me it involved Love, Music, Life and Loss it was just great.

The story is written by Rob Sheffield who is currently a writer for Rolling Stone and lost his wife suddenly and together they loved music and loved each other more than anything....

My favorite paragraph from the book was this....

What is love? Great minds have been grappling with this question through the ages, and in the modern era, they have come up with many different answers. According to Western philosopher Pat Benatar, love is a battlefield. Her paisan Frank Sinatra would add the corollary that love is a tender trap. The stoner kids who spent the summer of 1978 looking cool on the hoods of their Trans Ams in the Pierce Elementary School parking lot used to scare us little kids by blasting the Sweet hit "Love is like Oxygen" you get too much, you get too high, not enough and you're going to die. Love hurts, Love Stinks, Love Bites, love bleeds, love is the drug. The troubadours of our times all agree: They want to know what love is, and they want you to show them.

But the answer is simple. Love is a mix tape.

So what are you waiting for get down to your nearest chain bookstore and purchase this book you won't regret it I assure you!
