You Never Give Me Your Money. A fascinating read, one i cannot put down (well obviously i can as there are other things to do). Its also so refreshing to read a beatle book that doesnt go over the same old material as most others do.

Can anyone recommend any other beatles books that arent a rehash of the norm? Still have to finish Cant Buy Me Love which at least puts it all into context with social events at the time.

Im bored senseless of reading beatles meet, record, conquer, bicker, split.

I'm only 12, but I love George Orwell... a-hard-days-night-george-4 1984 was a smidge inappropriate, but I LOVED it. I just finished Animal Farm so now I am reading John Lennon: The Life by Philip Norman. It's phenomenal, but 822 pages.

Reading "Get Back: The Unauthorized Chronicle of the Beatles' 'Let It Be' Disaster" - a really impressive effort that, for all I know, Joe may have used as a source for some of the facts on this very site.

I only wish it were more up-to-date - it was written back in the '90s, and no doubt much missing recordings have surfaced in the interim.

Right now I'm reading John Lennon: The Life by Phillip Norman. It's pretty good, but I'm only at their first Cavern Club show, so I don't really know yet.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I've been having an ongoing internal debate as to whether or not I'm going to read that book. Can you please let me know your thoughts on it after you've finished reading? I just don't really trust critics who aren't hard-core fans, ya know...? For your accommodation, you will receive nine apples! a-hard-days-night-george-10
