And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Hollow's Music:

Kim has a rather large section on her main website for music. I thought I'd start a thread here for music as well. (grins)

I'm sending a dedication out to Rachel for some of the scenes in the two books. I don't want to give any potential spoilers. Thus, the song is dedication enough. (winks) The band is rather new, but I am extremely happy I found them!!!

Re: Hollow's Music:

Good topic! Thanks for the suggestion too!

I've found lots of new music from checking out Kim's music page on her website. I never listen to radio so reading suggestions from other readers is a great way for me to find groups that I've never listened to before.

Actually, I found my latest group from just following a particular guitarist who left a band I liked. If anyone has heard of Wes Borland from Limp Bizkit, he has a new band called Black Light Burns and a CD called "Cruel Melody." A lot of the songs from that CD relate to scenes with Ivy. One of my favorites is COWARD, which totally recalls the emotional aftermath of the "van" scene. If you enjoy good rock music, check him out. His MySpace is http://myspace.com/blacklightburns. You can listen to COWARD on the MySpace player on his page.

Lyrics:
You may find
that my appetite gets it's way
It keeps on growing and growing
Before you know it
I'm a beast swallowing prey
And it is clear,
it is clear
It's as clear as a f***ing bell
The more I wear off on you
The more I seem to wear your smell

Come on, get a way and save yourself
Come on, turn away and don't look back.
Come on, get a way and save yourself.
Come on, gray skies are turning black.

Cause I will always
hurt everyone I love
If I were you,
I'd run away cause it's true that
I will always
hurt everyone I love.
I'm aching for you,
but your bound to bleed if I adore you

You will see,
that there's a blood clot in my heart
I'm trying to make time to push it out
but I can't quite seem to start
And it is sore,
it is sore
It's so sore that it hurts to feed
You keep on taking little pieces of me
I'm gonna show you how to bleed

Come on, get a way and save yourself
Come on, turn away and don't look back.
Come on, get a way and save yourself.
Come on, gray skies are turning black.

Cause I will always
hurt everyone I love
If I were you,
I'd run away cause it's true that
I will always
hurt everyone I love.
I'm aching for you,
but your bound to bleed if I adore you

I think I'll keep you
in a place where I can see you
But I know I'll break you like before,
and I just can't do this anymore

Cause I will always
hurt everyone I love
If I were you,
I'd run away cause it's true that
I will always
hurt everyone I love.
I'm aching for you,
but your bound to bleed if I adore you

I'm aching for you (for you)

Thanks for posting these. Being an old fart but young at heart I've never heard any of this before. It's pretty good.

the above link has a "." in it so it needs to be copy pasted with out the period to work right.

http://myspace.com/blacklightburns or click this one.

Re: Hollow's Music:

I have been continually amazed at how many people do the same thing as I do, finding music that fits characters or scenes in books that I've read. I blame it on Disney and their movie, Fantasia. ;-) Right now, I get most of my inspiration from alternative rock, but 80's music is good, too.

Re: Hollow's Music:

I agree, it was like they were writing the sound track for the nook. I am stealing an idea that I saw on Kim's comment page a week or so ago. The person said it would be cool if Kim's books came with CD's to listen to while reading. Of course there are all kinds of legal and financial problems with that, but it'd be cool none the less

Re: Hollow's Music:

It might work. They would just sell the book/CD for more, and somehow split the profits for the artists and author. I think it would make for great publicity, having books and CDs together. Especially when they capture the book...or even vice versa. I really like the idea.

What an excellent idea! I think that the logistics of it would be a nightmare, though. Something to aspire to. (grin)

Re: Hollow's Music:

An easier option might be to put a playlist of music at the beginning of the book. Like what you were inspired by or influenced by hearing or that was just playing while you wrote? Carrie Vaughn does that in her "Kitty" books and it's really cool to try to get those songs on hand while I read the book.

Re: Hollow's Music:

Play list is a great idea. That would really work well I think.

Re: Hollow's Music:

I just found this singer/song writer on myspace. The song reminds me of Rachel and Ivy's relationship (but it could fit almost any relationship with Rachel).

Re: Hollow's Music:

Great idea to who ever said Kim should put a play list with her books, that would rock. On your home web site do you have a way of listening to any of your music suggestions? if you did that would be great! I tried listening to the german radio station on my computer, but my computer sucks pixy dust and I can't! =(

Re: Hollow's Music:

You mean me putting links on my site to listen to the actual music? Oh, I can't do that. I'd be a legal mess since not all artists want their music out there for free. Nice idea, though. (sigh)
