What did world-famous authors read?

The awesome people at Flavorwire & Legacy Libraries have looked at titles on the bookshelves of author's - so here's how you and I get a glimpse into the books read by some Greats.

Well, here's a peek at the books on the bookshelves of Sylvia Plath, Herman Melville (of Moby-Dick fame, to all teens out there), Mark Twain, Fitzgerald and others!

Legacy Libraries is one of the perks of being a LibraryThing member - I personally haven't signed up (YET!) but perhaps if you are a member, you can tell me why its good to join? Goodreads keeps me happy, and I dont want to have yet another time consuming profile/thing-to-monitor.
Pin It!


  1. A very interesting idea - follow the example of the best and read their books!

  2. Interesting! I'm always intrigued by famous authors.

  3. Thanks for those links. I've never heard of Legacy Libraries so will pop over there.


Thank you for the comment! I will always reply to each comment, and if you leave a link, comment on your site as well.
