Actually, prior to participating in this, I was unaware that LT had legacy libraries--post humous listings of the books in various "celebrity" libraries. There are 33 completed libraries and 35 libraries in progress, libraries range from politicos (Mary, Queen of Scotts and J.F.K) to actors (Marilyn Monroe) to scientists (Charles Darwin and DaVinci) to writers (Emily Dickinson and Ernest Hemingway) and revolutionaries (Susan B. Anthony and William Wilberforce).
I decided to look amongst the libraries of authors that are in my "To Be Read" pile, and found that I've got a little bit in common with both Sylvia Plath (TBR: The Bell Jar) and F. Scott Fitzgerald (TBR: This Side of Paradise).
Ommitting the books that are in my library from these authors, I share these books:
- Sylvia Plath - Aspects of the Novel, Brave New World, and Catch-22
- F. Scott Fitzgerald - Communist Manifesto and The Picture of Dorian Gray
Should I read something into this or consider myself in good company?
After looking at all the libraries (and removing duplicate titles), I have the most in common with Ernest Hemingway (whom I'm not particularly fond of as an author) with 11 matches: The Martin Chronicles, Wuthering Heights, Don Quixote, The Red Badge of Courage, Great Gatsby, Aspects of the Novel, Lord of the Flies, The Odyssey, The Communist Manifesto, 1984, and Brideshead Revisited.
I had eight novels in common with Walker Percy and Carl Sandburg. Check out all of my statistics here.
