Duncan Jones Just Launched The David Bowie Book Club

Iconic rocker David Bowie died two years ago this month, but he lives on in music...and now in literature as well. Last month, his son — Duncan Jones — launched an online David Bowie book club, which welcomes fans to join Jones in reading Bowie's favorite novels.

To join the club, follow Jones' twitter account and watch for updates on the current reading selection as well as the deadline to wrap it up before the club moves onto the next chapter in the literary tribute to Bowie, who was a voracious bibliophile.

"My dad was a beast of a reader," Jones wrote in a tweet last month that hinted at forming the club. "One of his true loves was Peter Ackroyd's sojourns into the history of Britain & its cities. I've been feeling a building sense of duty to go on the same literary marathon in tribute to dad."

He followed that up by announcing the club and the first reading.

If you want a sneak peak at the other titles on the list, check out a list of Bowie's top 100 books, which his official website published back in 2013. The list contains surprising titles such as the satirical British magazine 'Private Eye' as well as less shocking ones like George Orwell's '1984.'
