My vote goes to biographies, since I am looking for a good one to read. :)

Try "In My Hands" by Irene Gut Opdyke. She was 17 during WWII and hid and saved many Polish Jews at great risk to herself. She's one of my Heroes, without a doubt. :)
Some good biographies I have on the shelf:
Patton: A Genius for War, by Carlo D'Este
Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton, by Edward Rice
A Battle from the Start (Gen. Bedford Forrest), by Brian Steel Wills
Alexander of Macedon, by Peter Green
Wisdom and Innocence (G.K. Chesterton), by Joseph Pierce
The Reckoning (Christopher Marlowe), by Charles Nicholl
Life of Patrick Henry, by William Wirt
My vote goes to biographies"
I respect that you like bio's.
When I want to know about someone, I usually read the condensed version. I want to know where they stand as a person.
I don't really care to know every detail of their life.
I'm old and my brain is starting to get full.
Mostly I read for enjoyment .
In recent years,the two books I've enjoyed the most we're Swan Song and Unintended Consequences.
