Bionic Jean (bionicjean) Really good idea Ruth and some of these look fascinating! I can see your tastes and origins too. LOL!

I read a good one a few years ago - Eric Clapton: The Autobiography. Although I thought I knew quite a lot about him, it was still interesting and revealing. Plus I was surprised how well he could write.
