Marilyn Monroe’s personal library: an epic reading list | AbeBooks’ Reading Copy

In 1999, Christie’s staged an auction of Marilyn Monroe’s belongings, including her books. The books in Marilyn Monroe’s personal library, number between 400-500 titles, and reflect a wide range of interests and maturity levels.

When she died in 1962, she was only 36 years old and had publicly made the statement she found intellect the sexiest attribute a person could have.

I can only imagine what she would have done had she lived longer. I think the world definitely missed out on something good here.
