^^ Just an FYI, there are spoilers in that review.

parlance

Sorry, parlance, I was moving the review as you were commenting. But thanks for shouting out the warning. Just so people know, that is a fascinating review of the Extended Edition now over in the "Spoilers" thread. It has me even more excited.

A reminder, please do not post anything – including links – in this thread that gives away the contents. There are people here who want to know as little as possible when they get the book, which is why the "Spoilers" thread was created. This is a general thread about the book, for those who want to talk about their wait, excitement and anticipation.

Any comment, whether your own or a review, takes place in the other place.

I have a random question. How are people storing their dustjackets, if you do store? I don't want it to get mushed or torn, and this one's going to take a while to read, so I'm just keeping it in the Amazon cardboard box until I finish it.

Do you have a method for keeping your dustjackets for collectible books nice, or do you just keep them on the book while you read?

parlance

If the jacket is nicer than the cover then I put them to one side when I read the book, then put them back when the book is on the shelf.  If it is the other way round I have a box for all the jackets I'm not using.

One of the local book stores puts nice archival plastic covers on random books so I buy those when I get the chance.

10 days to go. Whenever i think of the date it seems so far away. At this present moment that time machine would be damn helpful.

The main Beatles writer for The Examiner hosted the SF Lewisohn signing. Part 1 of the story is up.

Amazon UK now have a picture of the two volumes (and their case) contained in the Deluxe Extended edition. Mmm, yummy…

Looks almost like leather covers – not sure which material is used though.

Glad to hear it – you are going to love it!

I told a co-worker it is 4 pounds of pure joy. It said so on the shipping label. Well…not the pure joy part.

Counting no, more ripping the days out of the calendar as they creep by. Keep forgetting about the BBC CD's out Monday.a-hard-days-night-paul-3 Never mind waiting for Christmas Day, hurry up 14th November!

Indeed – and I actually have cash in my wallet for BBC 2 – so the plastic will get a bit of a rest (which it needs after being hammered for my ebay purchases :)   )

Putting Paul there at the end of your post makes me wonder if you went straight to the Paul parts, LHL.

Uh-oh. I just envisioned edited versions of the book that only cover one Beatle.

Please don't give Beatle related book publishers that idea. Can't do with having to buy four different editions where you have to put them all together yourself to understand any of it.
