Friday Finds-Oct. 16

Should Be Reading asks you to share what books you discovered this week that interest you!

The book that caught my eye this week wasn't found on another blog, but actually at the Bon Jovi website!  Yes, you have read this correctly.  After hearing their newest song, We Weren't Born to Follow, I decided to go to their website and see if they were planning a tour soon.  I didn't see one yet, so please keep your eyes and ears open for me and if you catch wind of an upcoming tour please let me know!  But I did find a book that they are I wanting this just for the pictures?  Maybe, but who cares!  Check it out:

In all seriousness, here is a summary of Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful by Bon Jovi from the HarperCollins website:

You think you know Bon Jovi, but you don't until you open this book. With gorgeous, exclusive photographs and revealing text from the band members themselves, Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful captures Jon, Richie, Dave, and Tico at both intimate moments and under the limelight in all aspects of their lives, from the private times backstage and on the road to their stunning and unforgettable live performances. Stretching back to the early days in Jersey, through successes and struggles, and up to the 2008 Lost Highway tour—the highest-grossing rock tour of that year—this book offers fans a dazzling portrait of rock stars on the road as they reflect on their twenty-five years together as a band of brothers. This insider's portrait of one of America's best-loved rock bands is the subject of a major documentary and this extraordinary book.

You may be unaware that I am a Bon Jovi fan, so rest assured, if they do happen to go on tour again soon, I will be there.  So did anything catch your eye this week?

I didn't know they had a new song out. I just checked it out and it sounds like their old stuff. Love it! Yay on the book too.

I have always liked Bon Jovi. Some of the first music (records) that I ever bought was Bon Jovi. Yup, we go way back! It would be fun to see the photos in this book.

This sounds like a wonderful book about Bon-Jovi and their beginnings and then the time they really become popular. I'm sure the photographs are fantastic and there are many good stories!

This sounds like one worth having & keeping!

I know next to nothing about Bon Jovi, so this would all be new to me! I do love bios like this, though.

I met Jon (LOL) in the 80's when we both had very big hair. One of these days I'll have to post the emarrassing photo where I have draped myself over him.
