Bedside Reading List Updated

I maintain a bedside reading list on my web page, listing the books I've read this year so far. Right now, I am reading almost exclusively memoir, since I am in the process of writing a memoir. Go to:


and select bedside reading list from the drop down menu to find the list of books. I've recently added Running with Scissors, Lucky and Reading Lolita in Tehran to the list. These are three very different memoirs. I am now reading Struck by Lightening, which is another unique work.

I'm beginning to understand that the only rule to getting a memoir published is to lace it with plenty of drama.
