Off the top of my head, I've recently read and own...

"John." Cynthia Lennon (so so)

"All Those Years Ago, Miles (very good)

"John Lennon: A Life" , Norman (very good)

"The Lives of John Lennon" Goldman (controversial, but hard to put down)

"You Never Give Me Your Money," Dogget (excellent!)

"Here There And Everywhere," Geoff Emerick (excellent!)

"All You Need Is Ears," George Martin (good,but disappointing)

"The Making of Sgt. Pepper," George Martin (good)

"Ticket To Ride," Larry Kane (not very good)

"John, Paul, George Ring and Me," Tony Barrow (quick, easy and good)

"The Last Cocktail Party," that hippie dude (pretty interesting)

"The Beatles," Spitz (tough to read, but quite informative)

"The Book on Beatles Books" (helpful)

"Wonderful Tonight," Patti Boyd (mediocre)

"Love Me Do," (overrated, but much better than Kane's book)

there are more...

IN the past I've read.

The Lewisohn recording guide..

Lewisohn's Guide to the Beatles

"The Love You Make"

Shout

Growing Up With the Beatles

Coming soon...

May Pang's book "Loving John."

A Pete Best book...

going back to the topic here. I have read:

You Never Give Me Your Money- Doggett

Paul Is Undead- Goldsher (yeah the one where they were zombies)

never finished reading: The Beatles- Spitz

 

I lack on Beatle readings. However, I did read Miss O'Dell. Has anybody read it? It's about a woman Chris O'Dell and how she lived through the 1960s and 70s working for the Beatles, the Stones, Bob Dylan, etc. She goes on about her friendship with George, Pattie, and Mo. George wrote a song about her called Miss O'Dell. It sorta seems like a fanfiction type of book though for some reason. It only bothered me I have never heard of her in any other book or media source.

That's interesting, thanks!

I haven't heard of that one but I'll try to find it!

I've pruned what I have and have gotten rid of a lot of the "fluffy" Beatles books over the years and stick mainly to the legit books. I've got:

 

Hunter Davies' official bio (the 1996 edition)

Revolution in the Head

Days in the Life

Shout! (2001 edition)

Anthology (hardcover)

Mark Lewisohn's Complete Beatles Chronicle and Complete Recording sessions books

Bob Spitz's bio (which I wasn't as crazy about as some others...I found a LOT of factual errors and inaccuracies in it)

 

I'm eagerly awaiting the first volume of Lewisohn's definitive bio, but I heard that's been pushed back to sometime in 2013 for a springtime release (it was supposed to be out end of the year originally)paul-mccartney

I just got a book for Sinterklaas called ''The Beatles, A History In Pictures'' but that's the literal translation from Dutch. It's by Tim Hill and Marie Clayton

Haven't started reading yet though.

Also, according to my mom there must be a book about Sgt Pepper and one about Let it be floating around in the attic, but in here it's like once it gets to the attic it's lost forever.

 

And I have read the Anthology, my dad once brought it with him from the library. It was huge but a good read, just translated very badly. And they also put Paul's name somewhere where Ringo was talking, so ehh yeah..the translators weren't all too bright.

 

And I was at a bookstore recently and they had a whole table covered in Beatles books so I think I may buy one. There were ''inside stories'' among them too, but of course I've forgotten who wrote them.

Oh, a topic on Beatles book collections. Me likes!

I’ve been reading and collecting them since, well, since I started long ago. I believe the first full bio must have been a Spanish translation of the French bio Les Beatles by Alain Dister when I was a young lad. Until then, it was just the records which I knew inside out, but wasn’t so aware on the whole bio thing.

So here’s the list of the books. There are a few others I still have at my parent’s house in Spain, but probably no more than 4 or 5.

All the books are the English original editions unless stated otherwise. I've put the cover of the exact edition I have, except for one or two I couldn't find online.

I heard about this a while back and I meant to get it but I haven't got round to it yet. Is it any good?
