Other People's Libraries

The personal libraries of famous (or infamous) readers. This group is for The Living. Collections of books for readers who've passed to the library where there will be no late fees can be discussed and explored with the Legacy Libraries group.

This is *NOT* a cataloging group, only a bit of bibliophilic voyeurism. All living readers (famous or not) are encouraged to enter their own libraries. Links and information collected here may be used in future Legacy Library projects.
