    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "This book seems kind of niche, but it really held my interest quite well. It is more than just a story about a band - it covers the band itself, as a whole, as well as individuals within it, and what this kind of band might symbolize to the town. It works on a micro and a macro level, so to speak. It strikes a good balance between being neutral and being emotionally invested in the bands and the kids. It also does well at balancing information about technical aspects of the band's music and about the interpersonal struggles of its members. I would say that it is actually quite ambitious, but that it does live up to a lot of its promise."
