    Default Good Lincoln biographies?

    I finally saw "Lincoln" over the holiday, and really enjoyed it. But now I want to read more about him! I'm a fan of bios, autobios, and memoirs anyway, so I thought I would ask around about good books on his life.

    Also, any good books on Mary Todd? She seemed like quite the character and I want to know more about her.

    I think I'm going to pick up the book "Lincoln" is base upon in part ("Team of Rivals"). Any other suggestions?

    I'd gladly take recs on other bios, too! My Nook needs to be refilled.

    Last year I read Killing Lincoln: The Assaination that Changed America by Bill O'Reilly and loved it! Great book! I don't care for Bill O'Reilly but thoroughly enjoyed the book on Lincoln.

    Maybe I should see the movie....

    I am reading Lincoln by Gore Vidal and it is pretty good. I generally have 5 or 6 books going at once unless one really captures my interest so I have been reading it for about a month now.
