Shellie (justshellie) | 10 comments We were told to come with some suggestions of books for next year, and I'm wondering how you feel about biographies and autobiographies? Should I include them on my list or not?

Tanya Wadley (tanyayw) | 4 comments I like them a lot. It can't hurt to bring them for consideration!

I agree that a good biography would be interesting to discuss. However, I must state my bias ahead of time which is autobiographies are fiction. ;)
