I’ve been focusing on fiction lately, much to my personal enjoyment and increased reading speed, but this is an interesting question regardless. I’m enjoying Booking Through Thursday; are you?
There are so many crappy biographies … would you rather read a poorly-written biography of a fascinating life, OR an exquisitely well-written, wonderful read of one of a not-so-interesting life?
I think I’d prefer a fantastically-written biography of a boring person. I hate bad writing (Stephenie Meyer and Dan Brown, I’m looking at you), so I don’t think I could stand a badly-written bio even of the most interesting man in the world. Come to think of it, a well-written biography of a boring person sounds a lot like when I blog about myself. I’m not all that interesting, but I think I can handle words pretty well.
