Currently I'm reading When They Were Boys by Larry Kane. It's OK, not his best book. After that I'm reading The Beatle Who Vanished, about Jimmie Nicol, then I'm clearing the deck ahead of the Lewisohn biography (and the birth of my daughter, whichever arrives first).

Non-Beatles, I've just finished Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, about the disastrous 1996 Everest expedition. It's an amazing book. I seem to only read non-fiction nowadays.

In the library in the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art where they had on the shelves While My Guitar Gently Weeps: The Music of George Harrison (written by Simon Leng), The Beatles in Hamburg (by Spencer Leigh) and Sean Wilentz's “Bob Dylan in America” so picked those up.

First up is While My Guitar Gently Weeps: The Music of George Harrison which mainly looks at his solo work and life period. 27 pages in and the Beatles have broken up which is a welcome change to books that spend 4 months on the Beatles and then 3 months on whichever Beatles solo work it is, even if its about their solo careers.

If anyone wants these they will have to order them as the books are not being returned until read.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

The Simon Leng book is very good. It's basically Revolution In The Head for George's solo career. I love those sorts of books.

I just finished reading "Anthology".  What a HUGE book and fantastic read.  LOVED IT.

At the same time, I was and still am reading "Many Years From Now" by Barry Miles.  I am almost finished it.  It has been ok.  Next up is "You Never Give Me Your Money" :)

I want to begin reading the Anthology since I have heard a lot of great things about it from here.

At moment, well not right at this moment, I am reading psychology textbooks.

Same about the psychology books. Reading about how to have a conversation with a client.

Planning to start in 50 shades of Grey. Just for fun and I want to see how bad it is. According to my mom it's bad, but light-hearted and very addictive. After she finished it she immediately went to the store to buy the second book of the trilogy. Sounds like something I need: a light-hearted book to take my mind off all the heavy psychology-related books and something addictive to return my pleasure of reading.

Also looking forward to start in You Never Give Me Your Money, as soon as I have ordered it, ghehe.

I also read 50 shades to see how bad it is and it is truly terrible, the writing is atrocious! Unfortunately I have a weird thing that once I begin a book I have to see it through to the end. It took me ages to finish it!

I recently read Stephen Kings book about JFK (can't remember the title) It was amazing! It's about a man who travels back in time to try to prevent the assassination and it's one of those books where you're racing to the end to see what happens but once you finish it you're really upset because you just want it to go on and on. It's about 800 pages but even that's not enough!

Yeah that's what my mom said too. She said it was as if a 12 year old girl had written it, that it was written in a very dumb way. I'm kind of reluctant to start reading it, but I think I might give it a go.

Oh really? That one actually sounds interesting as well. Usually I do not really take an interest in anything politic, but this whole time-travel thing and the guy's goal make it different.
