Default Yoko\'s boook

I know this doesnt have to do with the Beatles but...did anyone ever read or see a copy of "Grapefruit" ???? Yoko made the book and I wanted to see what it was all about...

Sure, I have a copy of the recent reprint.

Its subtitle is "A Book of Instructions and Drawings." It's best described as something rather like "Life's Little Instruction Book," but I like Yoko's ideas better!

It's very cool!

Did you get yours in a store, or online (like eBay, Amanzon, etc)? It'd be interesting to read. Of course, I'm sure there are some at Beatlefest...

Actually, I got mine in a discount bookstore, a place that specializes in remainders. I got it last year, though -- I went back to that store last night, coincidentally, but they didn't have any left...

This isn't an original one, though, it's a reprint, produced in 2000.

I really do think it's wonderful stuff, though!

Oh, that's not something I would care about having the 1st edition. I don't have the 1st edition of John's books, but I've still got them. I'll look for Yoko's book at Beatlefest...if not just to flip through it while I'm at the stand.

I recommend it to everyone. Its an incredible book. Lots of variety, lots of really different things that may be considered strange to most, but its coming from a very unique mind. I love the book.

According to John, Yoko sent him a copy of that book (or gave it to him, can't remember which he said), and he looked through it from time to time. One day he was alone and thought of the book, so he got it out of his nightstand table and got Yoko's number from the inside cover (she'd written it there in his copy) and gave her a call. She came over, and that was the first time they were ever alone together although he'd met her over a year earlier. She spent the night and they made the Two Virgins album. I wonder if any of it would have ever happened if it hadn't been for that book--he said it was marvelous and that it showed him what a unique and fascinating mind she had.

Funny how things work out like that...

It's also a coincedence how both John and Yoko released their own books that were considered wonderful and strange at the same time.

I remember reading somewhere (don't recall exactly where at the moment) about Yoko checking out John's book when she went to the bookstore to look at hers. I've forgotten what she said about it, though; does this sound familiar to anyone?

Never heard of that, but it's cool, nonetheless.
