I happen to enjoy memoirs. Although there is often debate on how "truthful" a memoir truly is I can't help but enjoy these snippets of people's lives. Here's a couple I've enjoyed:
Early Bird a memoir of early retirement. A 28 year old decides he wants to be retired and moves himself to a retirement village in FL. Several humorus moments in this one.
Indian Creek Chronicles My all time favorite! A college kid from the city becomes enamored with the lives of the mountain men. He takes a job during the winter watching over salmon eggs in Idaho. I'm not one for nature type books but this one is really good! I've loaned it to several friends and have lost several copies. All of those I've loaned them to have loved it.

I have never read many (if any) memoirs but early bird sounds really interesting! I may or may not pick this book up soon on eBook!

I have a memoir in my TBR pile called, First They Killed My Father. I haven't had a chance to read it yet but it looks really good.
