Booking Through Thursday asks — Which do you prefer? Biographies written about someone? Or autobiographies written by the actual person (and/or ghost-writer)?
Biographies written about someone. It’s not one of my favorite genres though and unless it’s something that really interests me, I tend not to read many. It’s odd, I love stories but somehow when they are based on real people I find them less fascinating. I wonder why that is…and it’s too early for me to delve into that.
Although, one of my most fascinating reads has been a biography — Augustus by Anthony Everitt. I also have his book Cicero. (I love reading about ancient Rome.) I got about 40 page in before I put it down. I should start it again one of these days.
