This has been quite the year so far for celebrity memoirs. One book that's been making waves this week is Ryan O'Neal's "Both of Us," which goes into his time with the late actress Farrah Fawcett.
"I wrote it because I missed her," O'Neal told Matt Lauer on the Today Show on Tuesday. "And it was a way to keep the line between us going. I still felt she was nearby when I wrote this. She was close."
O'Neal isn't the only famous person getting personal lately via the bookshelf. Here are other celebrity memoirs currently out in stores.
