In their Shoes Reading Challenge 2009

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

Since I have added a couple of memoirs to my TBR, I decided to go ahead and join the In Their Shoes Reading Challenge hosted by Scrap Girl. According to the rules, you do not need to create a list or read a specified number of books. The selected books, however, must be either a memoir, autobiography, or biography. The challenge runs from 1/1/09-12/31/09.

Goal: To read at least 3 memoirs/autobiographies/biographies

My list, which is subject to change:

  • My Forbidden Face-- Growing up Under the Taliban: A Young Woman's Story by Latifah
  • The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama
  • Kaffir Boy by Mark Mathabane
  • Welcome to my Country by Lauren Slater
What are some of your favorite, must-read memoirs/(auto)biographies? I would love to hear some of your suggestions.
