My friend Mary and I have realized that most of the non-fiction books in our collections are biographies.

Would anyone be interested in doing a biography challenge in 2013?

I would love to.  Most of my non-fiction is biography as well.  Could memoirs be included?

This would include memoirs, autobiographies, and biographies.

We've outlined several categories already, including authors, performing and visual arts, animals, persons with disabilities, founding fathers, and villains.

I would like to participate this year. 

How will it be structured?  A biography/memoir/autobiography a month = 12 books. 

Do we really need catagories or just one a month of our choice. 

That way some of us can work on our TBR pile without having to search for other books. 

Just a suggestion.

I just read the list on another post and it is a good one, but I still wonder if we need a list of catagories.......

Pamela,

I like your idea.  This would give us a lot more flexibily to read what we already have on hand.
