From reading many posts on the forum I see that most of us like to read. We do seem to have a huge variety of subjects we enjoy but reading is a wonderful window into the world around us. Have you read any biographies? What's the most interesting one you've read?

I would have to say the ones on Winston Churchill. His entire family were quite amazing yet homey. He was a very funny guy but at the same time very serious about his country and the free world. The one thing I remember that was so very funny was his penchant for sleeping in his birthday suit. Once while he was staying at the White House visiting President Roosevelt he stayed in the Lincoln Bedroom. In the morning he awoke early and was sitting on the large bed reading when the maid popped in to see if he was ready for his breakfast. Oh was she ever shocked to see him sitting there in the buff and in the Lincoln bed to boot!... smhair shakehead turn

What's your favorite biography and can you share something interesting about the book? If you prefer not to read biographies then feel free to share about something else you have read.

I do love to read. Biographies are not my favorite. But I did say that I was going to start to broaden my books of choice and venture off into the biography sections. I have been checking books out at the library. It sure saves on money that way. Mary Higgins Clark is my favorite arthor right now. I have read "The Notebook" by Nicholas Sparks. It was a wonderful book! It was a little hard to get into at first,but turned out to be a page turner. I am reading another of his books right now"The Rescue" and it seems to be good too. I will start to read more. It helps get my mind off the "p" word and other problems. It's relaxing to me,too.
