Music to read books by
Like most people here I enjoy reading. I also enjoy sandwiches and music quite a lot. Combine the three and it is practically an orgy. Anyways I find that the best music to compliment reading is usually pretty mellow and without many words. Matching the right album to the right part of the book is almost like a sound track.
A few of my favorites:
Nik Bärtsch's Ronin (almost anything by ECM works)
Savath & Savalas
