Oh no, with all those great new books I'll be poor again in no time.

Great picture by the way.

I feel the same, on my "must-get" list are the Lewisohn books, the McCartney in the 70s book, the Recording the Beatles and Beatles at the BBC book, and the forthcoming Paul bio by Philip Norman in 2015.

That BBC book does look good. I was going to buy Howlett's previous BBC/Beatles book second-hand, but hopefully this'll contain all the information plus more.

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!

Indeed! I just wish they weren't all hitting at once, all these books I'll need to get (Lewisohn's book, this BBC book, the Man on the Run :P aul McCartney in the 70s book, which looks to be excellent). I will have a Beatle-centric Christmas list this year! :lol:

Lewisohn's book, Lewisohn's other books (the ones about recording), Ringo's book, the BBC book..and there's a long list with others since my library can't seem to get the books I want even though they're on their page of books that are available in at least one library in the country.

And a new ebook:

The release of a new interactive enhanced eBook showcases the generational reach of former Beatle, John Lennon , with reflections of art, music and words, inspired by this legendary artist.

John Lennon lives and entertains as the spirit and inspiration for A Lennon Pastiche: Expressions from Fans of John Lennon , now available at the iBookstore for $5.99 (http://bit.ly/LennonPastiche), an enhanced interactive extrapolation from author Judith Furedi’s 2009 coffee-table book publication, john lennon: in their own write, a loving tribute from his friends and fans.

I have been seeing a bit of these pictures from his book on tumblr lately.

Yeah my iTunes is saying it will only work on an iPad.  I have a macbook, but not an iPad.  Thanks Apple.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11apple01

That's okay I will get the hard copy when it comes out, I would rather have that.  Not much of an "e-reader" fan.   I'm all for saving trees, but there really is nothing like a physical book compared to a screen.  heart

Article at The Examiner on The Fifth Beatle comic on Brian debuting in San Diego this week. [x-posted at the news thread]

BTW, does anyone have any idea why Amazon has 3 different prices listed for the hardcover? I don't think they're different editions.

^^ Is it because if you pre-order it, it's cheaper?

I thought that might be it, but the range is usually not that wide. And the $75 option is what really got me.

If you click on the plus sign, you see the $75 one. Meh, I'll take fewer pages for less than half the price.

A review of The Beatles and Me at The Examiner.

Compiled by Sara Phillips and Liverpool musician Dean Johnson, the book contains roughly 40 unseen Beatles pictures and 70 new stories, and is the outgrowth of a Facebook page. Some of the stories, a few which date back to the Beatles' early years, haven't been heard before. And some of the pictures look like they've been tucked away all these years ago because they haven't been seen, either.
