Nineteen Eighty-Four. A great book.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Philip Norman's John Lennon: The Life.  It's an interesting book but the author annoys me at times.

Books for school, like Linde :(   I'm kind of flicking through 'In His Own Write' every now and then though.

Still haven't finished reading 'J.L. letters', which I've been at since October!

I started JL Letters several months ago and put it down without finishing it yet.  It was too big to carry with me on the train to work.  Since then I've read Grapefruit, In His Own Write, A Spaniard in the Works, and I'm currently on the bio I mentioned above.  I'm also slowly thumbing through The Beatles: Unseen Archives (which is mostly black and white photos from the Daily Mail), and slowly reading Anthology every now and then as well.  And I've gone through most of Benson's The Beatles: On the Road, which is the oversized photo book I mentioned before in another thread.

^ That's one of the reasons I haven't finished it yet, too. It's not portable! I read on the bus, in free periods at school, and sometimes I've only got 10 minutes spare. That book isn't ideal for any of those situations.

It's an attractive book, but I don't like the white dust jacket. It attracts dirt and stains and tears easily.  It seems that a lot of John Lennon objects are white.

^^ White is the colour of peace and purity, I suppose that is why. The cover does get dirty very easily, it's definitely not the type of book you rest your mug on. I quite like it though.

One of the books i'm reading at the moment (I have about 4 on the go) is The Complete Peanuts 1958 - 1959 having read the earlier ones. Its surprising and wonderful to see the characters to develop and all the jokes that would run thru the years begin. Never realised with the compilations and smaller editions just how great Linus is and how much of a hard time Lucy (his sister) gave him, she could be so nasty to him (and everyone else).

My daughter visited the house, not knowing anything about Anne Frank, when she was in Europe and counts it as a highlight of her trip.

I'm reading The Gods Drink Whiskey - Finding Enlightenment in the Land of the Tattered Buddha    and

Hunter Davies The Beatles - the 2002 updated illustrated edition.

Halfway through Milton Berle's memoir -- B.S. I Love You -- written in 1987, about his life being a famous comedian from the 1920s clear through to 2002 when he died at age 94.  He was born in 1908, started doing comedy shows when he was 12!

He was the first television host to have Elvis on TV -- in New York in 1955.

Been reading all the Harlan Coben books I can get my hands on, which have been three so far (in the past fortnight). I'm taking a break from crime novels at the moment, though, so I'm reading my first ever Danielle Steel book - 'The House'.

Ah, Harlan Coben. I read "Disappeared" several years ago. That was pretty good.

I often juggle several books at once. Since I couldn't find them at the library, I just bought used copies of The Longest Cocktail Party, which is really entertaining so far, and Barry Miles' In the Sixties (got it at Joe's suggestion). I inhaled the Paul parts in the latter, so now I'm going back through to read the rest. Also finishing Ray Coleman's John bio.
