Rock n’ Roll Reading Challenge

I am a total head banger…

Kind of like this! I even make the exact same face as Michael Myers. LOL!

*Party on Wayne* *Party on Garth* 

During my “History of Rock n’ Roll” class for Spring semester I was bored. Spacing out, day dreaming type of bored. My professor would go off on these off topic rants for two out of the three  lecture hours and I lost focus. The only time I paid attention was when it was necessary for notes and when he played music. But I found myself compiling my own Rock n’ Roll playlist from some of the songs played in class and some I absolutely love, comparing them to my Goodreads challenge. 

So here it is, my Rock n’ Roll Reading Challenge.
