Kiwi (Karin) (kiwikarin) | 38 comments Hi everyone,
during our discussion re: Rebecca, we suggested to always decide on a specific subject to collect suggestions for the next read (i.e. by one specific author, books written in Paris, plays, or whatever).
Our first "book by topic" will be around biographies (be it autobiographical or simply biographical). Does not be about someone famous....

Please send your suggestions by Friday afternoon - we'll launch the polls on Friday night, to be closed Sunday night.

Happy hunting!
Kiwi

I'm nominating Papilion, autobiography of a famous and charismatic 70s French fugitive!

Laura (ltoops) | 12 comments I nominate Shadows Bright as Glass, by Amy E Nutt, a story of Jon Sarkin's reinvention of himself after a stroke during brain surgery and an interesting overview of neuroscience studies and advances

Viviane | 172 comments Hello,

It was nice to meet you all yesterday. I nominate Marie Antoinette by Stefan Zweig (I haven t read this one but he usually is a good biographer).
