Crystal Caldwell | 36 comments I started out by thinking it only had to do with different countries, but there are a lot of groups, people, organizations, ect I don't know a whole heck of a lot about. For instance I picked Hell's Angels by Hunter S. Thompson a few weeks ago at a used bookstore, and I really don't know about "biker" culture. But is that really considered a culture, or is that kind of a cop-out?

What is everyone else reading for this category?

Audrey (ttrivium) | 46 comments I don't think that's a cop-out at all. I ended up using a more standard definition of the task and have Persepolis down for the task. I did consider using Men We Reaped, (poor, African-American, southern culture is definitely different from the middle class, mosly white, northern culture I grew up in). But everything keeps getting reshuffled on what I'm counting as what and Men We Reaped settled on the autobiography category.

Theresa Culture has a very broad definition when you look it up In the dictionary, and the biker book definitely fits the category! I personally plan on reading 'Memoirs of a Geisha' for this, but pulled 3 or 4 from my shelves, including Kite Runner, Bookseller in Kabul, and a somewhat fictionalized memoir of life in a Turkish harem in case I change my mind.
