Every Wednesday morning at 8:30, I join Brian Oake and Jill Riley to talk about a book that our listeners are likely to find of interest: musician memoirs, music histories, sometimes even novels by artists like Kate Tempest and John Darnielle. We call this feature the Rock and Roll Book Club, and we invite all our listeners to read along and share their thoughts.

These are books that you can find online (follow the links in the features to order titles through a service that benefits Minnesota Public Radio), at your local bookstore (look for our logo on shelves), and of course at your favorite library.

The Hennepin County Library system is making it particularly easy to find titles featured in our Rock and Roll Book Club: there's a handy online list that shows you which of the system's 41 branches have each title in stock, and which are available in other formats such as e-book and large print.

Library staffer Amy Luedtke points out that the libraries have other resources for music fans: recorded music (including plenty of rock and roll), free downloads, and more.

Whether you live in Hennepin County, Ramsey County, St. Louis County, Wayne County, Darlington County, or on the county line, we're glad you're rockin' along with us on the airwaves and on the shelves.
