BwGN AM Mixtape #104 – The one for a good book and a reading chair

I was going to make this week's mixtape back-to-school themed.... but I wasn't feeling it (as, I'm guessing, many who are headed back to school this week probably aren't feeling it either). Instead, since I've recently been devouring novels (and comics), I've dedicated this week's (mostly) instrumental playlist to the spaces we carve – out of time and place – for reading. Enjoy!
