I like to create a playlist for each book. It helps me get into the story faster each day. The songs come and go on the list, so this is a snap shot in time. (You’ll have to read the book and/or my behind the book interview on the Girl Gone Nova book page to find out the why behind some of these tracks.) I set iTunes or my iPod to shuffle, just to keep the juices flowing. 🙂
