Booktunes is a blog and website for people who like to be inspired by Books. Initially a website displaying Book Soundtracks, now a blog bringing tunes & thoughts, references, allusions, reflections and some fun stuff, with that one central inspirational source being literature.

As a reader (presuming that you are one), you know it takes some effort to let the text speak to you. Finding a mode to having literature play a role in everyday life can be a challenge, and maybe this – and the reward it brings – turns out to be one of the central themes of Booktunes.net.

“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”Ralp Waldo Emerson

Reading brought me a lot of good things and, surprisingly, valuable insights about the world around us. Surprisingly? I don’t consider myself as a very knowledgable person, I am no fact fiend and I hardly ever read the newspaper. Still I do find positive response when sharing thoughts on a wide range of subjects. I guess most of me is shaped by the books I have read, apparently there is so much to learn from pages of prose. I love to slumber between fact and fiction, but have to come to terms with real life as I love living it with my family, friends, with you.

Read, Go!

Would that be my battle cry? I try and make it work, and love sharing my experiences here. Have a look, play some tunes, enjoy the content, drop a line, welcome.

My tweets are on Twitter, videos on Youtube and yes there is a Booktunes Facebook page.

See you around,

Erik
