Musing Mondays {25/02/2013}

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I have a bit of a rant , I noticed when reading reviews on GoodReads and else where some don't understand the purpose of Biography !
This is any example " There's little about their wife and children" ??? paraphrased .
The book in question was a biography of someones career .Would you when  reading for example a sportsmans biography, expect them to go into an unrelated area??? WHY!  It isn't relevant. 
Perticularly in non fiction and history it drives me crazy, when i get the feeling the reviewer DOESN'T get the subject and is marking down for their lack of understanding or something irrelevant not being there.
