You may remember me reviewing this delightful, Beatle-y novel by Kelly Marie Thompson and Garry Berman back when it came out in 2016. No need for me to review it again when you can just click on the book image to the left and it will take you back to my old review.
I just wanted to give me readers a heads-up to the face that From Me to You is available as a FREE ebook download this week! From October 28 thru November 1, you can read it for free or even send the ebook as a gift to a friend or loved one! There’s no obligation or hidden fees…all the authors ask is that you take a minute and leave a review of their book on Amazon after you finish reading it. Simple as that.
And, if you don’t have a Kindle device, you can download the Amazon app for free to any smartphone, tablet or computer.
What could be better than free! And just in time for the holidays…
I’ve been slacking…I know. Summer seemed to be going along just fine, but somehow I lost control of my time to read when fall hit! During this time, though, I’ve been reading an Advance Reader’s Edition (that I got in July) of The Beatles from A to ZED by Peter Asher. I thought I would have this review out months ago and I must apologize to not only my readers, but also the publisher – Henry Holt and Company for my tardiness. The book will be released on October 29, 2019, but you can pre-order it now through Amazon where it’s currently ranked at #8 in Beatles books!
Most of my readers are familiar with Peter Asher, either because he’s the brother of Paul’s ex-girlfriend, actress Jane Asher, or because he worked for Apple Records, or because he was a member of the famous duo Peter and Gordon. Now a days, you can find him hosting his own radio show on Sirius XM’s Beatles’ station called “Peter Asher: From Me to You“.
Peter came up with the idea of using letters from the alphabet as a fun and interesting way to organize topics for his radio show and was inspired to write the book using this same format. The book, about 250 pages long, is filled with not only Beatles’ song titles to represent each letter, but also people, places and things that start with the corresponding letters that were a part of Beatles’ history. And Peter came up with some dozy subjects to discuss in each chapter and you’ll find yourself almost playing a game in your head as you read as to which songs and subjects he’ll cover.
This book is an easy and fun read. It might take a little getting used to, though, since it’s written almost like a script to his radio show. It reads as if your listening to Peter on Sirius XM or if you’ve ever heard him speak or sing in his lovely English accent, completely freestyle! And for that reason…
I rate this book, 3 out of 4 BEETLES!
