And the winner is…

Before I disclose the winner, I have to tell you that a funny thing happened on my way to the poll results this a.m. As I’m drinking my coffee and wiping the sand from my eyes, I notice an email with the subject line “Winner?” in my inbox. The email starts off with “Dead Beatles Freak,” Ummm…err…I think they meant “Dear Beatles Freak”, but then again, I could be wrong. After wishing me a happy new year, this person informs me that my poll did not close at 11:59 p.m. and included a snapshot of the results at oo:oo hours! The interesting thing was that the email itself was time stamped at 7:06 p.m.! LOL Sorry, Dead Follower, that’s not how these things work. The poll was set to close, and did close, at 11:59 p.m. (ET).

It was a tight race and a real nail biter over the past several weeks, but here are the results:

A Women's History of the beatles Christine Feldman-BarrettCongratulations to Christine Feldman-Barrett and her book A Women’s History of the Beatles! If you’re curious about this book, Amy Hughes reviewed it earlier this year…you can read it here.

The Best Beatles Books of 2020

     Apologies to those that participated in last week’s sorry attempt at this poll. There were just too many glitches in the poll to make it a viable way come up  with an accurate count. So we’ve created an online poll that is now based off-site at Survey-Maker.com that allows us to make sure every vote is counted. Thank you for your patience…
     Beatles Freak Reviews doesn’t like to be like every other Beatles fan site. So we’re going to do thing a little differently. Instead of us telling you what our favorite Beatles books published in 2020 are, we want to know your favorites!
     Just fill out our poll by either voting for one that has already been listed or check “Other” & fill in the name and author of the book in the space provided. We’ve listed a couple random books from 2020 to get things started. We’ll post the results in early 2021.
     The book with the most votes will be featured on our homepage for all of 2021!
