Does /lit/ read many biographies? What was the last one you read, and what did you think?
I started 'My Life' from Bill Clinton and I stopped somewhere after page 80. That was almost ten years ago but I haven't started anything from a politician after that and will not unless I know that it is going to be useful directly in real life.
I would read a biography about Hesse though, in a few years maybe.
rip the archive, there was a great thread just last week.
Napoleon the Great, Black Jacobins and American Prometheus was what I took out of it.
Looking for best biography of Ivan the Terrible btw

What do you want out of this garbage thread. People to fight over a consensus and accomplish nothing, or to samefag over and over to pretend to come to a consensus. What a shitty thread. Fuck you.

Is he kill? The forum is still active but he hasn't posted in months and the front page to his website is broken.

Compared to existing "young adult" genre completely decent beach reads.
I dare to say it even promotes good morality, friendship and it's not pretending to be something it's not.
>bestsellers have always been top tier literature
Stephen King seems to have an issue with this, not realizing there are millions of others better than he is and always have been.
Do people are still writing fiction because afraid of being wrong
Hi /lit/. I've been diagnosed with MDD and need something simple and uplifting to read until my next session. On a real downer at the minute. I've just finished Alice in Wonderland.
How difficult is this in comparison to JR or Recognitions?
