Amazon has used copies from ~14 USD and up. I'll definitely have to get one.

Where did you buy it? Surely used.


I found it on eBay, Brynjar.

I haven't actually started reading it yet Kathy so I hope it's good. I'm still working on the big tome. I also have this one waiting in line but I picked it up at the library:



So many Beatles books, so little time!

The editor in me notices that the "L" in that sign on the book cover was added at the last minute.  ha2ha

I know what you mean! I have several stacked up waiting to be read, and soon more will be on the way. Also, I just realized I have a bunch of unread ocean liner books that I can now read. When the kids were little, I was too afraid one of them would spill juice on, or rip, or otherwise ruin any of the glossy big ones or the expensive rare ones. I just pulled a biography of Charles Lightoller off the shelf the other day and remarked, "Hey, I can read this now. I spent $90 on it [on eBay] almost 10 years ago!" My elder daughter was shocked that I'd spent that much on a book, but that's probably half what she's blown on One Direction merchandise the past couple of years.  ;)  Besides, it's a BOOK, and I can rationalize pretty much any book purchase.

I just bought one too from amazon.co.uk. Used of course. Maybe we should start a reading group.  glassesslip  ;D

Yeah, I noticed that too! Cute! Along those lines I'm sure you're well aware of this sort of thing but it boggled my mind when I read it:

Enjoy those books Kathy. I can't think of a better investment.  :)

Unfortunately the Casualty Department at The Royal Free Love Hospital was too far away to be of any real help.

Whoever made that sign was suffering from Ali MacGraw.

I once had a mild case of Ali MacGraw.  It's a good thing I never saw that movie.  It could have been fatal.

I watched it when it first aired on TV. It wasn't fatal but I did get yelled at the next day by my 4th grade teacher for talking about it. She told me I shouldn't have stayed up so late and that I thought I was so special ever since I got white go-go boots for Christmas. Not that I'm harboring any lasting resentments. LOL

Oh my gosh; I was alternately horrified and laughing out loud, Kelley. Yikes! I've never heard of LAP Lambert, but I no longer take work from for-profit academic publishers, and this article is a good example of why. (The nonprofit professional associations still, thank goodness, focus on quality.)

I meant to say that that book looks very interesting, too. Now I'm torn on whether I should order Pete Shotton's book straight away or hold off...I still have some Beatle-reading to catch up on, including the first Lewisohn volume, as well as George Martin's book and Julia Baird's The Private John Lennon, but I get impatient when I see a book I really want.

I figured you'd like that! I have to send this to my daughter too. She just finished her Master's thesis and I'm sure she'll be hearing from someone sketchy.

Yes, of course. That's been a chronic condition, I'm afraid.
