I thought this was an interesting site since it lists which celebrities are reading (or rather recommending) what books compiled by Gardiner Public Library. Man, most of the celebrities are so obscure. Either that or my knowledge of celebrities is too pop-cultured.
I can’t help but highlight George W. Bush’s recommendations because I love people who recommend books that aren’t the common choices, and children books at that! I’m surprised that he has read one of my all-time favourite young adult books My Side of the Mountain by Jean George. He also recommends James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl and Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt, which I have also read but did not enjoy as much.
Some common titles mentioned frequently are The Lord of the Rings trilogy (J. R. R. Tolkien), Call of the Wild (Jack London), To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee) etc.
