Nine Books to Read in 2019 for Musicians

One of the many hobbies I have is reading. I love books, and I love reading during my practice breaks, and this year I have set a goal to read at least twenty-four books. Below are nine novels I loved and believe would be great for any level of musician to read in the new year. I have also included Amazon links to help encourage your reading. I am not going to give my opinion on each book because I want do not want to discourage you from dividing in. HAPPY READING!!
