Strange as it may sounds celebrities are not only these beautiful people we are used to watch on TV but also hidden book lovers deep in their hearts. Today, I offer you a closer insight to their book taste and readings they have on the bookshelves.
Why she likes the book?
“I like books that aren’t just lovely but that have memories in themselves. Just like playing a song, picking up a book again that has memories can take you back to another place or another time.”
#2. George Clooney and his favourite book War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Why he likes the book?
“Just some light bedtime reading, called War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy.”
#3. Olivia Munn and Replay by Ken Grimwood:
Why this is her favourite book?
“My favorite book is Replay, by Ken Grimwood, about a man who replays his life and the decisions he’s made over and over. The takeaway for me was that no matter what life you’ve led or the choices you’ve made, there will always be great love and great sadness—you can’t escape those two things. I think that’s a great lesson.
#4. Woody Allen and Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Why he likes the book?
“Catcher in the Rye has always had special meaning for me because I read it when I was young — eighteen or so. It resonated with my fantasies about Manhattan, the Upper East Side, and New York City in general.
It was such a relief from all the other books I was reading at the time, which all had a quality of homework about them. For me, reading Middlemarch or Sentimental Education is work, whereas Catcher in the Rye was pure pleasure. The burden of entertainment was on the author. Salinger fulfilled that obligation from the first sentence on. “, says Woody Allen.
#5. Dan Brown and A Wrinkle in Time byMadeleine L’Engle’s :
Why this is his favourite book of all time?
“We did not have a television while I was growing up, and so I read voraciously. My earliest memory of being utterly transfixed by a book was Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. Halfway through the book, I remember my mom telling me it was time for bed and not being able to sleep because I was so deeply concerned for the safety of the characters. The next day, when I finished the book, I remember crying with relief that everything had worked out. The emotion startled me — in particular the depth of connection I felt toward these imaginary characters. It was in that moment that I became aware of the magic of storytelling and the power of the printed word.”, he says in an interview for New York Times in 2013.
