{ book.chat - memoirs and biographies }


When I read this week's book chat topic was biographies and memoirs I thought I've got nothing.  I don't typically read biographies or memoirs because, well, they seem kind of stuffy and are usually boring.

So I cruised through my Good Read list and I realized that, yeah, I've read biographies and memoirs.  How did that slip past me?  But they aren't the typical biographies that you had to read on a president or someone in school for a book report.  I lean toward the funny and customer service sector it seems. But there are some some personal biographies below too.  I also like to read from the headlines too.
