Light My Fire

Ray Manzarak

From the Back Cover

No other band has ever sounded quite like the Doors. No other set of musicians has managed to produce quite so enthralling a combination of music and lyrics -- and no other front man has ever transfixed an audience quite the way Jim Morrison did. Ray Manzarek, the band's cofounder and keyboard player, was there from the very start -- and until the sad dissolution -- of the Doors, and in this heartfelt and colorfully detailed memoir, he brings us an insider's view of their brief, brilliant history, from Manzarek and Morrison's friendship at UCLA to the legendary Sunset Strip performances, from their string of groundbreaking hit albums to Morrison's tragic demise in 1971. No one can tell the story of the Doors like Ray Manzarek can. And now, in a world where, amazingly, the Doors still sound as fresh and fascinating as the day they made their debut, he finally tells it -- from the beginning to the end.

I will not list all 171 books on my #TBR shelf—that time is better spent reading or writing. Instead, I will list the 35 books I plan to read in 2019. Here are my past accomplishments:

Probably every reader has the same problem: too many books, too little time. Why not join a reading challenge to help you manage your TBR list.
