Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Deb over at Wordpress.
Q: Which do you prefer? Biographies written about someone? Or Autobiographies written by the actual person (and or/ghost-writer)?
Each has its pros and cons. With an autobiography you will get more of what the person was actually thinking rather than "he/she might have," "he/she could have," "he/she probably," etc, etc. However a biography may be more factual since someone writing about themselves might leave things out that could make them look bad. I would probably go with a biography if I had to choose. That being said, I LOVE Rosalind Miles's I, Elizabeth which is an "autobiography" of the Queen.
