Ramona Mead (ramonamead) | 63 comments Celebrity can be a pretty relative term, so get creative here! Consider actors, writers, musicians, politicians, I think fiction characters could even count!

I'm interested in the new biography of Robin Williams by Dave Itzkoff.

I'm also considering Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis

A few I've read this year and recommend are:

The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers by Maxwell King

Mo' Meta Blues by Questlove

Becoming by Michelle Obama

Failure is an Option: An Attempted Memoir by H. Jon Benjamin

Stina (stinalyn) | 11 comments Maybe I will finally get around to Volume 2 of Twain's autobiography.

Ramona Mead (ramonamead) | 63 comments I gifted myself a book about the Philadelphia Eagles for Christmas, so I might use that here. It's called Birds of Pray by Rob Maaddi.

Doree Weller | 2 comments Oooh, The Good Neighbor and the one on Robin Williams sound great. I was also thinking about Tough Shit, by Kevin Smith.

Lea (leaglette) | 12 comments Failure is an Option was SO DAMN FUNNY. I’m going to do Born A Crime for this I think.
