Here are some possible categories for a new biography challenge:

1) author; 2) collective (a book that focuses on more than one person); 3) influential woman; 4) "ordinary" person; 5) performing/visual arts; 6) person of the cloth; 7) person with disability; 8) president; 9) royalty/nobility; 10) statesman; 11) villain; 12) free choice; 13) free choice.

Any comments?

I'm already eyeing my shelves to see what I might be able to use.  It looks like I have something already for almost every category.

Cindy, that's what my friend Mary and I like about the challenges: it's a way to tackle those books we already own, but just haven't been able to read yet. We both own a great many biographies!
