The rule of thumb I go by is giving every new book a 100 pages. If it doesn’t grab me by then I don’t usually bother with the rest of it. Kindle Unlimited is pretty good for going about things like that.

I meant like recommend me a to tile of a bike you’ve read and liked but that is good advice anyway haha.

If you’re into science fiction, I recommend Sum by David Eagleman. It’s a collection of short stories (more like vignettes), each of which presents a different conception of the afterlife. It’s a quick read and also fun and thought-provoking.

Sounds fantastic. I’ll check it out.

I definitely recommend those two books below (especially if the 90s Britpop scene is your jam!) 

  • "Lunch With The Wild Frontiers" by Phill Savidge (from the point of view from a music publicist that worked with The Verve, Elastica, Suede, Pulp amongst other bands).
  • Oasis The Truth by Tony McCarroll (who was the original drummer of Oasis and the drummer on "Definitely Maybe" who gives an insight on the beggining and early days of the band up until him being fired of the band).

I've been following Mark on goodreads for years and he recently recommended "Bit of a blur" by Alex James, the bassist of Blur. I haven't read it yet, but I'm sure it's right up our alley, Thibaut.

I started The Game of Thrones books, finished the first one a few days ago and working on the second now. In case anyone is wondering, Bran sucks in the books as well.

A little over half through the second book now and it’s been so good. I’m starting to dread finishing these books now knowing there will probably never be an end to the story.

If you're a massive fan of MTV and when they used to play music videos, I definitely recommend this book

I Want My MTV by Craig Marks and Mark Tannenbaum

It is a very long book (more than 600 pages) but it focuses on the rise of the channel and puts a spotlight on a ton of music videos (the book focuses on the period from 1981 to 1992).

There are more than 400 people that were interviewed for this book (including artists, music video directors and staff that worked at MTV).
