Happy Birthday, Mr. Zimmerman...more books on their way..

Happy 70th Birthday Bob Dylan...., who gave us  classic lines such as...

" Come mothers and fathers Throughout the land, And don't criticize, What you can't understand,..."

"Once upon a time you dressed so fine, you threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you ?..."

"Yes, I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes, You'd know what a drag it is to see you"....

Books on Dylan include  his autobiography called, Chronicles: Volume One, which this reader thoroughly enjoyed and awaits the next volume.
Chronicles: Volume One

Bob Dylan by Greil Marcus: Writings 1968-2010, which I've read a bit of.

Bob Dylan In America by Sean Wilentz...and...

A Freewheelin' Time: A Memoir of Greenwich Village in the Sixties by Suze Rotolo

In January, Dylan signed a six book deal with publisher Simon & Schuster, including proposed sequels to his 2004 Memoir, Chronicles: Volume One

The times truly are a-changin..
