Re-reading it actually. Man, what a fun book! I hear the author is a pretty cool guy as well.a-hard-days-night-george-9

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 LOVE that book, Zig!  Excellent choice.  I'll be re-reading it one day myself.   I heard the same thing about the author.  He's pretty awesome!

 I cannot upload pictures on this site, no matter how hard I try :(   Anyway - I am reading "Beatles Graphic" by Herve Bourhis :)   My sister owns a few comic, card, graphic novel stores and she brought me this book as a gift.  I've never read a graphic novel before and I'm really enjoying it.

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!

 

Good to know because it sounds like Twilight x10.

Probably because it started as Twilight fan fiction.

Is that how '50 shades' started, really? I know a few girls who've read it and enjoyed it but I guess that depends on what you like in a book. I briefly considered getting it 'till I thought of the poor tree that had been chopped down to make it, and as I wasn't that bothered, it would be for nothing. I'd rather save my money for books (or anything else) I truly want.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Isn't 50 Shades in thousands of charity shops up and down the land like with the Da Vinci Code which every charity shops seems to have at least 4 copies of?

I just finished "Shout" and now I'm reading a couple of budget Beatles books from the local discount store while I wait for "Anthology" and "Literary Anthology" to arrive via my ebay purchases a while back.

The Cambridge Companion to the Beatles by Kenneth Womack.

It was in my library so I checked it out. This is only my second Beatles book to read. I am tripping out over all these little facts that most of you probably already know. The author references all the book I see mentioned in this thread.

I guess you could say I am still in Beatles kindergarten, but I am an eager learner. I have the Lewisohn book on pre-order. From what I gather from this forum, I might be going from kindergarten to grad school in just a few short months :-)

Been a few weeks since anyone said anything here, so I thought I would.

I have spent the past three days reading Ernst Gombrich's 1935 A Little History of the World. Has anyone else here read it? A history of Europe, rather than European countries, and the ideas that grew out of Europe (while not ignoring other parts of the world), it is one of the most remarkable books I have ever read. I recommend to all.

I'm rereading my absolute favorite book, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. After that, I've got The Complete Recording Sessions, a book about hockey in unusual places called Tropic of Hockey, and a biography of Gary Bettman called The Instigator.

There are a lot of typo's, punctuation is lacking at times, some of the content is debatable, and to be honest large chunks could be cut out to make it all a bit of a better read. Some twit has contributed 5645 entries by himself and most of it is complete garbage.blue-meanie
