I do, especially if they are written in story form. I detest facts, figures and statistics. You don't say how old this person is or what period in history they like. When you find these things out, check with your local librarian then book store. I'll bet they will fix you right up.
Has anybody read the new Mark Twain autobiography? It was apparently just released. I got it for my boyfriend for Christmas because he is a huge fan. It is really big. I bet it has a ton of interesting stories.
