Hey guys (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif)
I'm sure a lot of us have some sort of a wish list when it comes to MM books. My wishlist changes all the time, but here's the list as it is now.

These are at the top (in some order, actually):

The ones I want the most:
Monroe: Girl Waiting (her drawings & art)
Banner: Marilyn - Passion & Paradox
DD Group
Ricci: Marilyn (big book about the Ferragamo exhibit)
Howard & Northcliffe: Marilyn. Her Life in Pictures
Shaw: Marilyn New York Years

These too when they are published:
John Florea's Marilyn
Blue Book Days


I'm interested in hearing your wish lists! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)


These used to be on my wish list but now I have them (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/clapping.gif) :

(IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I have only one book on my wish list, because it's quite expensive. It's the Compelete Last Sitting, the Bert Stern photos.
Interesting topic, Paju! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Marloes, out of those books I only have Zolotow's book (as you can see the rest are on my wishlist), and it is a very good book. It's not as credible as maybe Spoto's or Guiles' biographies are, but it's still very informative and well written. I really hope you'll be able to get it soon! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
Katri, The Complete Last Sitting is also a book I'd love to have. It's such a huge book full of pictures... I was thinking of adding it to my wishlist. Even if Stern isn't my favorite photographer that book would still be awesome to have! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Good idea, Nicky:)

I've been lucky to find most of the books I thought I'd never find during the last few years. Including Joe Franklin/Laurie Palmer's The MM story and Leigh Weiner's Hollywood farewell, Bernard's Requiem for Marilyn and Clark Kidder's Uncovers. Now what I have high on my list is

-Richard Dyer's Star Dossier One and.... I have to edit the post when I remember them all... I still have a lot I want, but I tried to get the most difficult ones first and then just pick up the easy ones that are missing:)

Marilyn Monroe: The Life, The Myth (this one is more of a dream than a wish!)
Marilyn By Moonlight by Jack Allen
Marilyn Monroe In Spain by Frederic Cabanas

And I very much hope that Ralph Roberts' book will be published one day...I'll be first in the queue!

I´m so happy, I was in Montreal during the holidays and found the Marilyn Encyclopedia at a bookstore on sale for only 15 Canadian dollars! What a great bargain (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/smile1.gif)
