<p><b>INSTANT #1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the film <i>Rocketman</i>, to becoming a living legend.</b></p><p>Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of twenty-three he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt, and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again.</p><p>His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with song-writing partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation to conquering Broadway with <i>Aida</i>, <i>The Lion King</i>, and <i>Billy Elliot the Musical</i>. All the while Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for over a decade.</p><p>In <i>Me</i>, Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble, and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you by a living legend.</p>

<p>Acclaimed Beatles historian Kenneth Womack offers the most definitive account yet of the writing, recording, mixing, and reception of<i> Abbey Road.</i></p><p>In February 1969, the Beatles began working on what became their final album together. Abbey Road introduced a number of new techniques and technologies to the Beatles' sound, and included "Come Together," "Something," and "Here Comes the Sun," which all emerged as classics. </p><p>Womack's colorful retelling of how this landmark album was written and recorded is a treat for fans of the Beatles. <i>Solid State</i> takes readers back to 1969 and into EMI's Abbey Road Studio, which boasted an advanced solid state transistor mixing desk. Womack focuses on the dynamics between John, Paul, George, Ringo, and producer George Martin and his team of engineers, who set aside (for the most part) the tensions and conflicts that had arisen on previous albums to create a work with an innovative (and, among some fans and critics, controversial) studio-bound sound that prominently included the new Moog synthesizer, among other novelties. </p><p>As Womack shows, <i>Abbey Road </i>was the culmination of the instrumental skills, recording equipment, and artistic vision that the band and George Martin had developed since their early days in the same studio seven years earlier. A testament to the group's creativity and their producer's ingenuity, <i>Solid</i> <i>State </i>is required reading for all fans of the Beatles and the history of rock 'n' roll<i>.</i></p>

<h2><strong>If you want Hallmark-like Romance--don't miss this new Christmas Collection by Kindle All-Star and Best-selling author, Taylor Hart! </strong><br /><strong>Her Hollywood Fake Fiance</strong><br />A famous movie star and the drama teacher who calls him a hack! Will they get their Christmas Miracle?<br />Grant Kent, movie star extraordinaire, doesn't like the fact he has to have a fake 'media' relationship with his co-star to keep his movie producer's happy. And he really doesn't like the fact his brothers' give him grief about it. So when he's asked to help out at an acting camp for inner city kids, he jumps at the chance to do something real. Too bad the woman in charge tells him outright she thinks he's a hack.<br />The talented Jewel Olympia only wants to help inner city kids by giving them an opportunity to learn acting skills. When she's notified the week before Christmas that the P.I. she's hired to track down her birth mother has a solid lead on her whereabouts, she decides it's time to finally meet the woman that abandoned her in a hospital emergency room twenty-five years ago. Too bad an amazing looking movie star keeps bugging her to go on a date--bug off, she's unavailable.<br />But when her parents show up on her doorstep asking where she's going, she tries to distract them with Grant's star power to avoid hurting their feelings. When he blurts out he's her fiance, everything gets derailed and she finds herself on a jet to Jackson--this is not her life!<br />When a simple trip turns into a media frenzy, they're left with a choice--trust in Christmas angels or lose everything.<br /><strong>Married by Christmas</strong><br />A firefighter and the woman who broke his heart ten years ago.<br />The beautiful and fiercely loyal, Emily Times, wouldn't admit that Tom Kent was the one who got away. No, she would never admit that. Number one, because she'd turned him down. And, number two, because she didn't have time to think about the past. Until she's stuck at her boss's wedding in Maui and her boyfriend ditches her at the last minute. <br />When Tom Kent wins a trip to Maui, he has mixed feelings about going by himself and is over the moon happy when his professional football player brother takes time off to go with him. He never imagined he'd run into the woman he proposed marriage to ten years ago. And he really never imagined she would ask him to be her date for a wedding? Good thing he says no.<br />Too bad his brother ends up going back to Denver and all he can think about is how bad Emily must be hurting. So he makes a deal with her--he attends the wedding and she goes with him on the excursions already booked. <br />When old feelings start to surface, they must make a choice: trust in each other or walk away and lose the dream they always wanted. <br /><strong>The Christmas Groom</strong><br />Nathan Pennington, aka billionaire attorney, had only one idea on his mind the week before Christmas…forget about the past year and enjoy the beautiful Park City ski slopes. His plan was working, until some annoying ski bunny sprayed snow in his face. Her rudeness wasn’t something he could let slide. Nathan chases the woman down the hill intent on chewing her out, but when face-to-face, he’s struck by the vulnerability and anger in her eyes.<br />Storm Goodman has heard every weather joke in the book—and she’s not in the mood for another. Lately her life has lived up to her name. After a year of personal setbacks in her skiing career and her grandfather passing, she thought the worst of it was over until Four days before Christmas her lawyer tells her she can’t inherit the ranch her grandfather left her—unless she’s married by noon on Christmas day. Good thing she has a guy to marry—too bad he’s also the same guy who cheated on her last year.
