R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe Picks His Favorite Books

Written by:

Michael Stipe of R.E.M. has submitted his favorite books of all time to One Grand Books.

Located in Narrowsburg, New York, One Grand Books is the brainchild of Out Magazine editor Aaron Hicklin, whose idea was to have a shop that only stocks books that appear on the lists of writers, artists, musicians and actors.

According to their official site, the store,”…is a curated bookstore in which celebrated artists and creatives share their literary inspirations.”

Stop by and visit One Grand here:
