BOOKS TO READ WHILE ISOLATED

Government Isolation is in full swing here in Australia. So I thought what better time to recommend some of my favourite books for you read. Initially, I was going to do one post touching on various genres. But there are some topics I love more than others so it’s best to break them down into a collection of blog posts. The best part about each of these books is they are available digitally via iBooks and Amazon Kindle.

I wanted to begin with my favourite genre, Auto/Biographies. There’s nothing I love more than reading about the lives of others. So needless to say my auto/biography collection is bursting at the seams. It wasn’t realistic to write suggestions for every book in this genre I have read so I have narrowed it down to my favourite 11 reads.

Please note a handful of books recommended below have mature content within their pages. Before renting/purchase, please ensure this book is right for you.
