Jim Morrison of the Doors by Tom Davis (1990s)
Interesting biography of Jim Morrison of The doors and the incredible! unusual life he lived in the limelight. I knew virtually nothing about him before and learned a lot. Through I read this book in a weekend it is pretty long (over 400 pages) and at times seems a little too detailed describing his concert performances and how he did, but I learned a lot about someone new for me. -- Added by Macbarclay on 02/28/2014

Empty Mansions
Empty Mansions by Bill Dedman (2000s)
This is just such a fascinating non-fiction book about the history of the extremely wealthy Clark family and largely about the eccentric heiress Huguette Clark who, while maintaining about fives mansions for millions of dollars, spent the last twenty years in a hospital in NYC and wasn't even sick. In fact, she lived to be over 100 and outlived everyone in her immediate family. I would highly recommend it. You will be entranced by this strange story. -- Added by Macbarclay on 02/28/2014

Finding My Balance
Finding My Balance by Mariel Hemingway (1990s)
Pretty lightweight reading. I read this book in just a day or two and found it somewhat interesting given Ms. Hemingway's pedigree, but it relied very heavily on her experiences with yoga and her description of various poses. I'm not sure I would highly recommend the book but it is certainly not terrible and does give a glimpse into the author's life up to the point the book was written and her celebrated past. -- Added by Macbarclay on 01/28/2014
