It’s the time of year when some people celebrate the holidays with loved ones, some contemplate their plans for the year to come, and some compile top-ten lists. I’m pleased to see that VJ has made a couple of year-end lists of people’s favorite music books in 2013. (There aren’t exactly ten on either list–they are not shackled by decimal convention.) Thanks to David Chiu at Brooklyn Based (“outrageous and hilarious”) and Nancy Davis Kho at Midlife Mixtape (“full of delicious insider detail”) for their kind words. Check out their lists for other music books you might enjoy–and remember that VJ makes an excellent Christmas gift.
