    Literary-themed CD swap?

    Hi, all -

    A while back, I posted a suggestion for a themed CD swap in the Freestyle forum that went, well, nowhere, but I thought I'd pitch another one that I thought sounded cool. Here's my idea: a mix of songs that go with characters or scenarios from different books. Here are a few examples, just off the top of my head:

    "Love Song" by The Cure (Jane and Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre)
    "The Space Between" by The Dave Matthews Band (Arthur and Morgaine from The Mists of Avalon)
    "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence (Sydney Carton and Lucie Manette from A Tale of Two Cities)

    Anyone interested? I think it could be fun ;).

    That sounds really interesting! I might be into it, but it depends on the time frame (I'm in the midst of a move and don't have access to all my CDs) and if I can find some suitable songs... (Also, I live in Europe, but CDs are quite cheap to send, so...)

    I can think of a few songs that are about or inspired by writers.

    OK, campers, here's the skinny: If you are interested in doing this swap, pm me your snail mail addy by Aug. 21. Then shall we say CDs need to go out by Sept. 1?

    I don't know how many people will sign up, but I would like to do this round-robin style, with everyone getting 1-3 CDs. Sound OK? Just throw together a mix of songs that remind you of books that you've read. Be sure to tell your group which book a particular song reminds you of; also, some particulars of why would be good, too (though not required - I know everyone is busy ;) ).
