We seem to be a society obsessed with celebrities. Personally, I don’t read the tabloids or follow anyone famous on social media. Here’s what I do enjoy: reading biographies!
I find it interesting to find out the history of a famous person from an expert or right from him/herself. Luckily Idea Exchange has many titles to choose from. This is a list of some of my favourites:
- Becoming November, 2018 - Former first lady Michelle Obama gives a detailed history of her life.
- Tessa & Scott: our journey from childhood dream to gold October, 2018 - Canadian skating stars Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir share their story with lots of colour photos.
- Hindsight & all the things I can't see in front of me October, 2018 - Highlights of singer Justin Timberlake’s life with many colourful photos.
- Educated: a memoir February, 2018 - Tara Westover describes her life growing up with her survivalist Mormon family in Idaho.
- Almost Interesting: the memoir October, 2015 - Comedian David Spade recounts his life.
It’s also nice to hear the star in his/her own voice. Check out these books on cd or audiobook downloads read by the author:
