Adding to My Reading List

I seem to be on a biography kick lately. I'm updating my "Must Read" list to include a few more.

1.      Decision Points – George W. Bush
2.      Known and Unknown – Donald Rumsfeld
3.      On Writing – Stephen King
4.      An American Life – Ronald Reagan
5.      Catherine the Great – Henri Troyat
6.      Harriet Beecher Stowe: A Life – Joan D. Hedrick
7.      Mary Queen of Scots – Antonia Fraser
8.      We – Charles A. Lindbergh and and Myron T. Herrick

I'd love to hear some suggestions for "must reads". They don't have to be a biography, just tell me some of your favorites.
Also, don't forget there are only 22 more days to enter the "Space Tales" Contest. See: http://writinginwonderland.blogspot.com/2011/01/space-tales-writing-contest.html

I keep On Writing on my desk at all times. It is one of the most inspiring and educational books on the craft -- you're going to love it!

Thanks for the follow, and I look forward to reading your answers for the Bernard Pivot Blogfest!

That's quite a line up of biographical books. One of the books I am currently reading is Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor by Brad Gooch. It's pretty good so far. She's one of my favorite authors so I considered this a must read.
