Not really, but thanks.


message 3: by David (new)

David Great list, but there's quite a few on this list that I wouldn't consider celebrities by the description of the list like Elizabeth I or John Adams, etc.


message 4: by Katie (new)

Katie Smith The Diary of Anne Frank is not a celebrity biography.


message 5: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Nicholas "Fifty Shades" isn't celebrity biography either. That belongs in the rubbish bin.

The Diary of a Young Girl has been removed as it is a diary, not an autobiography/biography. (The description clearly says 'Hollywood, Broadway, Writers, TV. Biography or autobiography. Part or whole of a life. Cast a broad net').

I couldn't find it; someone else must have deleted it already.


message 8: by BookLovingLady (new)

BookLovingLady I wouldn't call In Cold Blood (#36) a biography or an autobiography either. Don't get me wrong, it's non-fiction but that doesn't automatically make it a biography or an autobiography.


message 9: by Mary (new)

Mary Williams Why isn't Springsteen's Born to Run on this list??????

You can add books by clicking on the tab 'Add Books To This List' (on the right of the tab 'All Votes') at the top of this list (which you've already done).

Removed it. It's not biography, and also no one in it is or was a celebrity.

Removed a bunch of those.

John Thompson I especially like reading biographies of famous people. Success stories motivate and propel me to action. Now I'm also writing a biography, and therefore these books are especially relevant to me. But I need to prepare military biography, and it differs in the writing format. I found a military biography example, and it became much clearer for me how to write it correctly. I'm very glad that such information and help can be found and used in time.
