There's still time.
Although you're probably a little too late if you plan on getting it done online at this stage of the game, most of the mall stores should still be open until midnight on this, the "real" busiest shopping day of the year. Forget about Black Friday. December 23rd is the day when the real last-minute scrambling takes place.
And if you're stuck for ideas, what better gift to give this holiday season than the Beatles?
Now there's something nearly everyone can agree on, right? The only problem there is that if you're anything like me, the Remasters box may be a bit out of your price range. As far as CDs and books go, the Beatles fan in your life has also most likely already heard and read it all.
Fear not, procrastinators. We have the perfect gift for both the casual and the most obsessed Fab Four fanatic. Because if you think that everything that could be possibly said about the Beatles has already been written, think again.
Fab Four FAQ is an easy-to-read, 500-page book that is absolutely crammed to its bindings with just about every obscure factoid you would ever want to know about John, Paul, George and Ringo — not to mention Stu, Pete, Brian, Linda, and Yoko. This book covers just about everyone who has ever been associated with history's most celebrated band. They don't miss a single groupie here.
The book is broken down into five distinct sections, and comprises some 50 chapters that really are more like a series of lists. You get pages and pages of the sort of stuff that even the most knowledgeable Rockologist or Beatles buff in your life might have either forgotten, or most likely never knew in the first place.
A random sampling of the chapters here includes such fascinating trivia as "Ten Acts Knocked From The #1 Spot By The Beatles," "Try Thinking More: The Original Titles Of Beatles Songs," and "Ten Mistakes That Slipped Onto The Vinyl."
