Hi, I quite like reading all different people's biographies or autobiographies. I've just read Clarissa Dickon-Wright's (courtesy of the book swap with Matilda's Mum) and now I am reading the biography of rock group Motley Crue. Worlds apart but both really good reads. geek

Reading Dawn French's 'Dear Fatty' at the mo, series of letters, OK, but not quite what I expected/hoped for

Have read Julie Walters and Dawn French both which I enjoyed, like FT the Dawn French one was not what I expected. I have just started to read Alan Carr which has had me in stitches already (mind you dh says I have a weird sense of humour) Guess what I got lots of for Christmas ????

The best biographies I have read are the Billy Connelly ones, I could be laughing and crying all in one chapter.

I have Julie Walters too, looking forward to reading it Very Happy

Recommend David Niven's, think it's called Life's a balloon. I read it donkeys years ago (probably about 20), but remember it was amusing... Laughing

I just googled Kim Woodburn to she if she was who I thought she was - she was! Don't really know much about her, but that doesn't matter, I don't necessarily have to know the person to read the book.

Nearly finished my Motley Crue book - both this one and the Clarissa Dickson-Wright one ended up in rehab so there's a bit of similarity there after all!

Some years ago I read one about Peter Sutcliffe (Yorkshire Ripper) it was interesting, but only served to stoke my fear of bearded men! Smile

the kim woodburn one is a great read,
very moving and honest,
the lady is wonderful and has lead a very interesting if quite sad life at times.
