Book Report Album Cover Book Report by Grover’s Mill

Grover’s Mill is a one-man home studio wizard called Will Greeves. He enjoys writing songs with quirky lyrics that mean something, with music that’s eclectic and that usually combines samples and his own noodlings. He’s like the band name – he cuts it up and mixes it up.

Check out the fabulous lyrics for this cult book anthem:

Hey there brothers and sisters I wanna talk to you as a friend,
So let me tell you ‘bout some books and authors I would like to recommend.There’s PKD, and PD James and my man Herbert George Wells.
And don’t forget Dickens and Kipling and Kerouac, so many fantastic stories to tell.The Lord Of The Rings, The Time Machine, the classic On The Road.
The Grapes of Wrath, War And Peace, even the Da Vinci Code.And Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
The Shipping News by E Annie Proulx, and anything by Ursula Le Guin.

You know, The Dispossessed, Left Hand Of Darkness.
You don’t? You should read ‘em. Because…

Books are real, books are cool,
Learn to read, that’s the golden rule.
They’re the reason you should go to school.
Some never read them, but they’re just fools.
Books are real, books are cool,
Learn to read, that’s the golden rule.
They’re the reason you should go to school.
Some never read them, but they’re just fools.
Yeah, books!

Alright HG, break it down for me…

(could I see the books?)
Yes my man you can see the books they’re in this place called a library.
Just take a walk around in here, you can read them all for free.

There’s histories and biographies of some inspiring lives.
There’s science fiction and non fiction so many books for you to try.

Imagine a way to learn all the wisdom of the ages
From Buddha to Jesus and Martin Luther King, they’re all writ down in these pages.

The Jung, The Old and The New Testament and of course the Tao Te Ching.
But most of all, I want to emphasise this…anything by Ursula Le Guin!

My man Ged, the Wizard of Earthsea, the boy wizard.
She wrote that long before that Harry fella came along.
Hell, I am the wizard!

Books are real, books are cool,
Learn to read, that’s the golden rule.
They’re the reason you should go to school.
Some never read them, but they’re just fools.

Books are real, books are cool,
Learn to read, that’s the golden rule.
They’re the reason you should go to school.
Some never read them, but they’re just fools…
