My personal favourite is On Writing by Stephen King, but that's the only biography I've read so far lol. Great for writers.

I've read quite a few biographies and autobiographies. One that was very interesting to me and one I also felt was very honest was:

What's It All About by Michael Caine. But, I love Michael Caine.

And welcome to the board.

Hello Kenney:

That's great you've read many biographies. Can you mention some of your own favorites that you've read?

I've not read many biographies, but I enjoy reading letters published by authors or well known people. Especially older ones.

I just checked my bookcase and one biography I did read is:

My Own Cape Cod
by Gladys Taber
(The author of the Stillmeadow books invites her readers to Still Cove, on the Cape."

1971

Great thread, by the way, Kenney.

Hey plily, I love James Dean too!!! I used to collect JD memorabilia. I had this watch with his face on it back in the early 90's and this girl came up to me and asked me where did I find a watch with Luke Perry on it?!!
Haha! I was like, Luke Perry? Whatever.

Anyways, the best biography I have read is on Jim Morrison.
I heart

I don't read many biographies but I really liked A CINDERELLA STORY (I think that's the title) by Bill Murray, even though it is mostly about golf. The first part where he's talking about growing up is great. I recently read a memoir called A YEAR BY THE SEA about a woman who takes a year off from her life/family...etc...and goes it alone at a beach house. I also love anything by David Sedaris (brother of Amy) who writes about his life, although I've been told much of his stuff is exaggerated to a degree. Still, he is sooooo funny!! ME TALK PRETTY ONE DAY and DRESS YOUR FAMILY IN DENIM AND CORDUROY are especially good.

I loved Bruce Campbell'sIf Chins Could Kill. I haven't read On Writing, but I heard it's good.
Ooops, I forgot to put down a signature.

I'm getting a signed copy of a book written by Leonard Nimoy AKA Spock from Star Trek when I meet him at the comic expo. And I get to meet 3 of the Twilight vampires. Yay :)

For those who asked-- I couldn't get very many autographs. They were expensive. Sorry. It would have been something to write home about if it weren't for the creepy dude who flashed me at the grounds. I didn't report him to the police. Then I would've had to re-live the nightmare.
