Hi all,

DS needs to read an autobiography for school - does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks :D

Faster than lightning, usain bolt, was a hit with son number one, he was years year 8 when he read it, but he is not a big reader. Easy to read and quite inspiring and funny according to him.

I just looked it up in the big cyberspace book shop, it has pretty much all 5 star reviews from other lads too, so perhaps eldest was right?

Barack Obama's Dreams From my Father - it's on my DS' list - it's very well written and an enjoyable read.

Just thought of another one

Noel Streatfeild's A Vicarage Family - ( shows my age!) I enjoyed it, may be more suited to girls than boys.

:lol: :shock: just bought that today from Oxfam!

Why do posh people hang onto their baby nicknames or school names so much longer than us commoners? First thing I ds3 read was his real name is Edward, presumably called ted, so named "bear" by his sister when he was a week old.
