Is That It? by Bob Geldof (1987-03-02) - Bob Geldof

Is that it by Bob Geldof My birthday gift 1985, the year they took my license to drive away, I was given a special birthday gift: was the watching nonstop, no chores no meals to make and i was able to watch the whole liveaid and even told others my brother is Bob Geldof. Like that he's a knight now and nominated for the nobel peace problem but mostly because of the aide he's helped raised. Story focuses on his childhood and although he had siblings he felt alone. Very detailed descriptions, adult content but was happy got to hear about the process of setting up bandaid and how others helped. Trip to Ethiopia was hard to listen to because of what was there. Loved this book due to all the work involved in making th event a success. Received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Bob Marley and the Wailers: The Ultimate Illustrated History by Richie Unterberger
Bob Marley and the Wailers: The Ultimate Illustrated History - Richie Unterberger

If you like Bob Marley you will love this book. The books starts with Bob's birth and goes up past his death in 1981. Death did not slow Bob Marley down in his quest to make Reggae known around the world. His band mates the Wailers are still going strong today and carrying on his legacy. 

 

The books takes you through an illustrated tour of all things Bob Marley. His life, his death, and his music. I was actually fascinated with not only the pictures but also the written parts of this book. I thought I knew a lot about Bob Marley before reading this book to find out I actually knew very little. I knew basic facts before and honestly very few. After reading this book Not only do I know more about Bob Marley but I also understand him more. 

 

I have always enjoyed Bob Marley's music. This book is the perfect edition to the albums I have of Bob's. Great book for any library or music collection. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

#boutofbooks Cycle 20 End of the Week Update

Bout of Books

 

Reading Progress

Thursday:

Didn't read at all. Too tired from working PTO stuff

 

Friday:

Still too tired from more working PTO stuff

 

Saturday:

Continued reading The Dragon and the Pearl by Jeannie Lin - got maybe 20 pages done while doing laundry. Spent most of my day being caught up in two rage-inducing traffic jams on the M25 going to and from Heathrow. Hubby is home!

 

Sunday:

Continued reading The Dragon and the Pearl

 

Challenges Completed

Thursday:

Skipped

 

Friday:

Pretty easy to do. I copied/pasted my reviews for The Bootlegger's Daughter by Lauri Robinson and Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin to GR. I refuse to review at Amazon. However, I am not really into this guilt-tripping/challenge of "helping" an author's career by posting reviews everywhere (Amazon, GR, NOOK store, Kobo, etc).

 

Saturday:

Skipped

 

Sunday:

No challenge provided today so as to give participants more time to read.

 

Comments:

PTO stuff is a huge time and energy suck towards the end of the read-a-thon. I need a nap. The Dragon and the Pearl is MUCH better than the previous book (may end up liking it more than My Fair Concubine), so it is not the book's fault I am slow to finish it.

Reading progress going okay. Challenges are okay. Can't do the Twitter chats due to time zones (2am is either for sleeping or reading). Getting more reading done than I thought I would with the few PTO events I have to prep and go to.
