Bettie☯ I'm trying to add this http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/59... *shrugs*

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Done. If you vote for it, I can remove my vote, as I haven't actually read it ...

That said, "Anne Frank's Diary" is most certainly not fiction -- nor is by its own definition "Out of Africa," even if Dinesen's approach to truth in storytelling might be considered somewhat arbitrary.

Bettie☯ Thankee TA

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Bettie wrote: "Thankee TA

My pleasure! :)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads What remarkable famous real women are in "Little Women"?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) The authoress herself ... I thought we might as well add it, as it's essentially a thinly-veiled autobiography ...
