Booktunes links to the iTunes Music Store because this service from Apple offers the largest online music library. If you are not familiar with iTunes, find info & free installer here. Click the links for Apple computers at home or an iPod to play when you read on the road.
How to organise your Booktunes collection on a computer using iTunes:
We advise you to keep your Booktunes collection well organised. It is nice to have the tunes at hand when picking up a book. How we do it:
Feel fee to send us an email if this summary is insufficient.
Booktunes likes (some)things analogue
All pictures we use for the Booktunes artwork are made with an old cam, toy cam, Diana, Holga or maybe some other piece of analogue equipment. If you make pictures inspired by books and would love to contribute to the site, please do send us an email.
Q: Is Booktunes independent?
A: Yes, Booktunes is an independent website. We do link to Amazon and iTunes and the system we built makes full use of their evergrowing supply of books and music, but we run our own business.
Q: Is Booktunes international?
A: Yes, Booktunes is a website to be enjoyed all over the world. However, the system linking to Amazon and iTunes only works in four countries now. If you are visiting from The States, The United Kingdom, The Netherlands or Germany make sure to klick on the right flag. If you are visiting from a different country, feel free to send us a request for adding your country to the system. Impatient? You can always order the books abroad and get an iTunes giftcard for the US, UK, NL or DE on eBay.
Q: Why Amazon? Any alternatives?
A: Booktunes links to Amazon because it simply is the largest web merchant when it comes to books. If a UK publication is not yet available through Amazon, US visitors will be sent to The Book Depository If you are looking for a particular pressing or a nice collectible, you should try Alibris Books US or UK.
As a Dutch visitor you will be sent to Bol.com for a copy in the Dutch language. If a title is not available, you will be forwarded to Amazon.de (did you know they offer free shipping to NL?).
Q: A song is missing out in the compilation, how come?
A1: The song might be not (yet) available in the iTunes Music Store.
A2: We decided not to put it on according to the relevancy of the song.
A3: The related book deals with so many tunes, we thought it would be better to give you a proper selection. If you want to add more songs, find them at the iTunes Music Store.
Q: The Beatles missing out on some compilations, how come!?
A: Apple (the computer brand behind iTunes) and The Beatles (the band behind a record label called Apple) only recently made a deal on selling Beatles material in the iTunes store. We are busy updating our playlists and articles related to books that refer to The Beatles. More info here.
Q: No Vinyl?!
A: Yes Vinyl!! We love it, but in these days and times a concept like Booktunes wouldn't be viable without the use of digital files. If you prefer to have a certain tune on vinyl we advice you to send an email with your request to our favourite Discogs seller.
Q: Does Booktunes need me?
A: Yes, we do! If you have any news, ideas, book or music recommendations, if you are an aspiring or professional writer and would like to contribute, or if you are or represent an interesting subject for the next Booktunes release, please send mail.
