I've always been a fan of biographies, mainly because I love to read about people's daily routines. Simone de Beauvoir would have breakfast at the nearby cafe at about 8am, write until 12 or 1 in the upstairs area (Jean Paul Sartre would be in the opposite corner doing the same). Then she'd have lunch with Sartre and perhaps other friends, and spend the afternoon walking around, then reading, and having dinner around 7, followed by drinks.
A friend of mine told me about this blog dedicated to daily routines, and it's right up my alley. Check it out here.
