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.
