In attempt to prepare my high school classroom bookshelf for Common Core, I am looking for deals on Memoir and other creative non-fiction.  I will be incorperating more independent non-fiction reading into my curriculum next year and my current section of memoir is pretty pathetic (the students check these books out and often don't return them...perhaps a sign that they like these books). 

Books need to be in reasonable condition so that they will hold up to multiple readings, but if you are offering fantastic deals I am willing to overlook a bit of hilighting or writing from college days (I know some of my books from my memoir class have some hilighting). 

I teach junior and senior levels, but also provide books to the freshman teacher when her students do their "biography" project.
