So we’re getting into crunch time and you don’t have anything for your Beatle-loving friend (or CLOSE friend)? Well, we’re here to help with a great idea you may not be aware of.
If you’ve been wanting to buy a wireless reader, there’s good news: You don’t need a Kindle if you have a laptop or an iPad. There’s a program and an app available on the Amazon.com site that enables you to read wireless books through your computer or iPad. The iPad actually has several apps available from such vendors as Barnes & Noble and Borders, as well.
But here’s the better part: All sorts of Beatles books are available and can be delivered almost instantly. And there are some great books available, some very cheaply.
The best bargain we’ve found is Alan J. Porter’s “Before They Became the Beatles” for only $2.99. It’s a detailed look at the Beatles and their music in the early days. The printed paperback sells for $17 at Amazon, so that’s quite a nice reduction. We have this and it’s very handy for reading or as a reference in wireless form.
Another inexpensive choice is David Sheff’s 1980 John Lennon Playboy interview “All We Are Saying” available for $4.99.
Buying wireless verisons of Beatle reference books, such as John C. Winn’s “Way Beyond Compare” or “That Magic Feeling” () means you can carry them around all day very easily. So you can be obsessed with details anytime and anywhere as long as your computer, iPad or e-reader is with you.
As we said, delivery of the files takes under a minute and they are available 24 hours a day.
OK, did we solve your gift problem?
