Bookshelves of famous people

Nowadays, we live among scripts and algorithms that automatically analyze our book reading habits and suggest the next book to read.

However, isn’t a recommendation from the smartest of people a way better than a recommendation from the smartest of tools?

Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote: “If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.” Well, you don’t have to ask.

Mike Hanski from Bid4Papers designed a wonderful infographic with bookshelves of famous people.

From the original post by Mike Hanski:

Many famous writers, singers, politicians, and even movie characters prove the fact of reading’s great influence on people’s mind: if you take a look at their bookshelves, you’ll definitely be surprised.

Are you interested in favorite books of John Lennon, George R.R. Martin, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, or Queen Victoria? Start exploring. Click or tap on the image to enlarge.
