Top Ten Tuesday- Reading about People

For this week's Top Ten Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish, we have a freebie. I decided to do a list of ten people I'd like to read more about, in the form of biographies, autobiographies, or memoirs. Some may exist already and I just haven't gotten to them, while others might need their stories told or updated.

1-3- I want updated autobiographies/memoirs from Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden

4. Julia Child- I have had her's on my wish-list for ages, but haven't ordered it. Her life was so fascinating!

5. Franz Kafka- This one is sort of cheating, since I am currently reading the graphic novel version right now. He was such an interesting guy!

6. Gloria Steinem- Was there any doubt?

7. Lance Armstrong- His story is long and has been drawn out over many years and I know only bits and pieces. I want the whole story for once! 

8. The Beatles- There's a million different ones, but I know that it has to be by Mark Lewisohn. 

9. Eva Peron- Such a big story to tell. 

10.  Harvey Milk- I saw the movie way back when and meant to learn more. 


  1. OMG! I can not believe I saw Eva Peron in a TTT list! I am an Argentinean living in the USA, and I love Evita! She did a lot for her people!too bad she died to young! This made me emotional!
    I always wanted my two daughters to have something from my country my older has my mother's name and I gave my younger Eva Peron's name. I named her Eva so she always remember where her other side of the family comes from.
    My TTT,

  2. Don't hear much talk about Biographies in the blogsphere. I haven't read many. Maybe I should change that? I do find them intriguing if they're about someone interesting.

  3. The only one of these I've read is The Mayor of Castro Street about Harvey Milk, which I read in high school and found really fascinating. Hope you get a chance to read it!

    My TTT

  4. Great list! I have a couple Beatles books on my TBR that I really should get to in some century. I had one that I started way back and really liked it, but for some reason put it aside and haven't got back to it yet.
