    I recently finished a book by Daniel J. Levitin called This is Your Brain on Music. It is nonfiction about (you guessed it) music, and I found that while some of the information might be better represented through a different medium, it was still a very interesting read. I would definitely recommend it to you if you are a musician or if you are at all interested in learning more about what makes music what it is and why we enjoy it.
