Booking Through Thursday: Celebrities?

Bookish , Jumping on the bandwagon

Today's Question:
Do you read celebrity memoirs? Which ones have you read or do you want to read? Which nonexistent celebrity memoirs would you like to see?

I don't make a point of reading them or anything, but I've read a few. Shirley Temple's was great, as was Kristin Chenoweth's. (Review of that one coming soon.) For years, I said "Patti Boyd should write a memoir!" because hey, she was married to George Harrison and Eric Clapton. And then she did write one, and I still haven't read it. Ah well.

Nonexistent memoirs I'd like to read (in alphabetical order): Christiane Amanpour, Nancy Pelosi (oh, wait, she does have one), Aaron Sorkin, Bradley Whitford... umm. That list was much shorter than I expected, but I can't think of anyone else off the top of my head, except for people who are known for being writers, and generally when a writer writes a memoir, I don't think of it as a "celebrity memoir." I'm sure there are others I'm just not thinking of.

Oh, Aaron Sorkin...there's a memoir I'd like to read.

Oh, Aaron Sorkin would be great. I love West Wing and Studio 60.

I've read them since they were called autobiographies. Shelley Winters (who is a hoot and a half), Pamela des Barres, Lauren Bacall.... I just picked up Peggy Lipton's from the library last week. Fun stuff.

I read Dianne Rehm's memoir and found it interesting.
