Celebrity Reads!

These days everywhere I look, there is something on a billboard, or magazine, or television screen that tells me exactly what is going on in celebrities lives. Sometimes I am utterly fascinated, most times not (although I have watched my occasional reality show--even watching a design show on Style network about a reality television star's house makeover).

However, it is really fascinating to me about what a celebrity reads. Why did they choose that book? Who Reads What? doesn't answer all of my questions, but it does give me more books to read. The list is compiled by Gardiner Public Library in Gardiner, Maine and features people from Pat Boone to Jeff Foxworthy. The latter recommends the Bible: "It starts off with a bang and has many fascinating chapters. The ending is a page turner too!"

My favorite is Johnny Cash's choice of two Edna St. Vincent Millay's books: Collected Poems and A Few Figs from Thistles. The man in black likes poetry!
