The Elvis Encyclopedia

This 608-page behemoth is the detailed chronicle of every aspect of Elvis Presley’s life, full of rare photos, album and movie specifics, and even a copy of his last will and testament. It’s probably some sort of cliché that I’m from Memphis and a huge fan of Elvis, but I think I can probably blame my dad for that more than where I grew up. I’ve seen an embarrassing number of his movies, my favorite one being GI Blues, and I can still sing every musical number by heart. This book would make a great conversation starter for any coffee table, or use its hefty weight to straighten out a stack of curvy paper.
