I liked Bob Spitz' writing style so much I looked into what else he had written. His first bio was called The Beatles. I'm almost done with it and I don't want it to end. It is 900 pages and very heavy so you may want to try it on an e-reader. (I don't do those yet!) Fascinating story. I give a run-down every morning to Julia on what happened the night before in the book. Crazy rise to fame for those four young men. And they changed the world of music too. I can remember my mom sitting us down in front of the t.v. to watch them on The Ed Sullivan Show in b/w. I was 5 years old. Here's Paul watching that tape. I went to see him in concert many years ago and he was fabulous. I hear he is on tour again this summer and amazing still at 70!
A couple of cookbooks to recommend because they are summer reading for me too. Turquoise - A Chef's Travels in Turkey. Ooooooooh - gorgeous photos and stories and many delicious lamb recipes. I finally got April Bloomfield's A Girl and Her Pig. Lovely book and recipes and illustrations and stories about food.
Anyone else have any good bios they have read lately that you might want to share? I love a good biography. My next one is Storyteller about Roald Dahl. It's just waiting on my bedside table. Heard about it on someone's blog that I can't remember.
A surprise in my in-box to share with all of you. One of my students from last summer adopted one of our kittens named Mia. I just received this beautiful photo of a painting Judy did of Mia. Judy has let me share it with all of you. Lovely colors Judy! Thank you for letting me share!
