Of course you would.ahdn_paul_01

Any James Patterson fans here? Years ago, I would read everything he wrote. But he keeps churning out novels faster than I care to read them. Blank sheets of paper in his house are more rare than Carnival Of Light.

I was just looking up his bibliography and I think the last one of his I read was just before he started the MR books. I was into his Alex Cross series and think the last one I read was before Alex joined the FBI. That was a while back.

Am just over [33] 1/3 of the way thru 'George Harrison: Behind The Locked Door' and its excellent. Written with deep respect for George and insight yet very honest and with humour, never getting either too high and mighty or low and disparaging.

Also slowly reading 'Beatlemania: The Real Story of The Beatles UK Tours' (by Martin Creasy), its a really good mixture of fan accounts and press reports from the time which give you a taste of what the shows were like. The one problem is that the chapters vary between long and super long and are not broken down beyond new paragraphs so it seems like a hard trek at times.

I bought more books when I was in France :( - I also went to the library today, I have about 30 on my to-read list now.

Library

Your House Is On Fire, Your Children All Gone- Stefan Kiesbye (I have never heard of this before, I liked the title and read the back- it seemed interesting)

The Cuckoo's Calling- Robert Galbraith (AKA J.K Rowling)

Lord of the Flies- William Golding (I read the first couple of pages years ago and didn't like it- I decided to give it a try.)

The Old Man and the Sea- Ernest Hemingway

One Day- David Nicholls (I saw the film, I like Jim Sturgess blah)

Ecstasy agus scéalta eile- Ré Ó Laighléis (Irish short stories)

 

France (and one from Austria)- All with an * are in French, with  ** is German

Tarantula- Bob Dylan

Jimi Hendrix- Olivier Nuc* (Got it for a €1 :D )

On The Road- Jack Kerouac (finally the proper novel also slightly battered from being 'on the road')

Nineteen Eighty-Four- George Orwell (just wanted my own copy of this- I've read it before)

Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen**- Joanne K. Rowling 

 

Beatles (all in French)

Lennon Remembers- Jann S. Weiner (Same in English, for some strange reason they didn't change the title)

Les Beatles, Les secrets de toutes leurs chansons 1962-1966 & 1967-1970- Steve Turner (In English: 'Hard Day's Write: The Stories behind Every Beatles Song')

Recontres avec John et Yoko- Jonathon Cott    (In English 'Days That I'll Remember: Spending Time with John Lennon & Yoko Ono')

 

To answer the actual question: Lady Chatterley's Lover- D.H Lawrence. Very well written but draws out a bit too much. To all who don't know what it is about: It's a well written 1920's version of Fifty Shades of Grey with less bondage.

Finished the supremely excellent 'George Harrison: Behind The Locked Door'. Plan is to finally move on to ''All These Years: Volume One: Tune In (Deluxe Edition)'.

As I’ve said in the “What’s going on with you life” thread, I was reading Lawrence Sutin’s biography of Philip K. Dick, an author I first read when I was thirteen (Ubik). Last year I finally read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, after watching Blade Runner for the fifth or sixth time. Unfortunately I had to stop reading his biography because I need a new prescription; my reading glasses don’t do the trick anymore.

I discovered an amazing resource of free on-line books (most of them dusty classics and dusty unknowns):

https://archive.org/details/texts

Back in the Prehistoric Era of Phone Booths, Push-Button Phones, Television, and CD Players -- back in the mists of time in the years B.I. (Before Internet) -- I would have died for this kind of resource!

Alas, how old you make me feel...! "Prehistoric" -indeed I'm like a dinosaur or at least a Neanderthal man…

I did a "Beatles" search. Some strange results. You can download the 'AHDN' film and 'I'll Be Back'!! There's also 'And I Love Her' from the film but its very slow.

Oudis, what's funny about it is, that "prehistoric era" was so recent in time!
