So it’s our mom’s birthday so we thought we send out a shout out over the internet for her (don’t worry mom we won’t tell them how young you are). Since she really likes autobiographies we reviewed an autobiography each in her honor. She even asked us about doing autobiographies on our blog, which both of us predicted she would and to keep things consistent it won’t be hard to guess what part of your present is since you know Buying Books for Birthdays is always good idea.
