I've been doing some casual research on the Beatlemania era related to a writing project. Regardless of whether it yields much of anything, it's been great fun!

These are a few of the text sources I consulted:
- "We're Going to See the Beatles!" An Oral History of Beatlemania as Told by the Fans Who Were There by Garry Berman
- Beatles '64: A Hard Day's Night In America, text by A.J.S. Rayl and photographs by Curt Gunther
- The Beatles Landed Laughing In New York, poems by John B. Lee
- BOOM! by Tom Brokaw
- Miss O'Dell by Chris O'Dell with Katherine Ketcham
However, the most absolutely fascinating writing about The Beatles I have ever come across is a series of blog posts - Yoko Ono: A Feminist Analysis by Cara Kulwicki, which Yoko herself liked so much as to re-post on her IMAGINE PEACE site. Cara's whole Gratuitous Beatles Blogging category at The Curvature is a treat.
Let's see if I can still link up to Gracey's Literary Stylings at Fashion for Giants, and of course I'm always ready for Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style. AND Bella's Shoe Shine. Yeah, yeah, yeah!
