K&T Music to My Ears Challenge - November

Kiss & Tell discussion on goodreads

Hello everyone, and welcome to the November edition of Music to My Ears! 

This month we are honoring the music of the late Tom Petty!

He made great music with The Heartbreakers, as a solo artist, and side projects like The Traveling Wilburys. This southern gentleman from Gainesville, Florida had an impact on my life with his songs and his laid back nature. I was fortunate to have seen him in concert in 2014. Grab a Highway Companion and take on the challenge. Don’t back down.

Starting: November 1 through November 30.

Read as few or as many books as you like, up to 11 books.
Two books: Tepid
***Four books: Warm***
Six books: Hot
Eight books: Sizzling
Ten books: Smoldering
Eleven books: On Fire!
