Book Week 25 - Y is for Yellow, Yellow submarine that is.


What is the first thing you think of when you hear Yellow Submarine.  Why the Beatles of course.


 John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr

My husband was a big Beatles fan and last year introduced our son to their music. He loved their music which lead to me trying to track down and order the movie "Help."   Little did I know you could watch the entire movie via Google.   I found it on a movie website, ordered it and was surprised when my post man showed up with a package from Russia.  It's silly and interesting and a fun movie to watch.   What does any of this have to do with Yellow?   Why the Yellow Submarine of course.  The entire movie is also on line which you can find here.

Each of the Beatles wrote a book, or two or three over the years.










(written back in 1964 and reprinted 2000)

So, take a trip down memory lane and read a book by one of the Beatles or check out one of their movies. Happy Birthday to Sir James Paul McCartney who was born June 18, 1942.

  1. I've never been a Beatles fan, but reading about them could be a fun way to "get to know them." Have you read Outliers by Gladwell? He has a section in his book about the Beatles.

  2. I love the Beatles' music, but am not a fan of reading biographies... maybe I'll just watch their movies this week, instead.
