Ooh thanks @meanmistermustard. I'll have to get a copy then.

It's really annoying that it's ebook only. I don't mind them for novels and casual reads, but with Beatles reference books I always prefer paper copies. I find ebooks much harder to flick through to find an elusive snippet of info, and they're a right bugger to stick Post-it notes on individual pages.

Edit: the new version has a lot more text. I'll tweet RU and ask if there are plans for a paper version.

Yeah, I was sitting down with the ebook and paperback earlier and noticed for the first time how much new text and information is in the update so its pretty much an essential upgrade. Tho its a pity its unlikely there will be a print copy of the ebook as the other is gorgeous to go thru.

I bought Pattie Boyd's 'Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me' for £1. The guy serving me was surprised it was priced as such but not much he could do. pattie-boyd_02_gif

Book I really want is Lennonology but it's expensive. I'll be getting it as soon as I'm able though. I'm also going to have to get Lewisohn's Recording Sessions book, believe it or not I don't already own it.

Same here. There is no way I can justify so much for a book.

Question, @The Hippie Chick: Is there any reason you don't have John's posthumous Skywriting By Word of Mouth? It always seems to be the forgotten Lennon book to me but I love it for the fact that it includes his most autobiographical writings.

Going to get that one for my collection. Thanks RN!

 

EDIT: Done. Just came from Amazon, it's on my Kindle now.

I've added some books to my collection. I need to go back and update my list.

Good to hear, @The Hippie Chick.

Mostly written during Yoko's pregnancy with Sean, it's doubtful it would have been published had John lived, but it is a fascinating insight into his view on so many subjects.

It is not at all the entirely jovial book that the first two were, but is touching for its honesty about how he viewed things at the time he wrote.

I won't spoil it for you by mentioning some of my favourite bits.

Would be interested in your opinion when you've had a proper look.

I bought @Ahhh Girl a copy at the Waterstones in Liverpool when she was over last year.

Hope she enjoyed it, as I hope you do.

I gave @Ahhh Girl a copy as well! She must have two now. She's probably stockpiling them.
