Tuesday Thingers


This week's question: Legacy libraries. With which legacy libraries do you share books? Tell us a little about a couple of them and what you share.

To find which books you share with Legacy Libraries, click on "Statistics" from either your profile or your home page; then click on "Legacy Libraries" in the second row of clickable choices.

My answer: I share a couple of books with a bunch of legacy libraries; I share 3 books with Marie Antoinette, 18 books with poet Sylvia Plath and 8 books with Marilyn Monroe, among others. I also share five books with Tupac Shakur and one with Harry Truman. I like this feature because it's interesting to see what different people in different walks of life liked to read. Tupac Shakur and I share the following:

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

One Hundred Years of Solitude (P.S.) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

1984 (Signet Classics) by George Orwell

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

The Dictionary of Cultural Literacy by James Trefil

All in all I think I like his taste in books!

I have another question for you all as well: what other topics would you like me to cover in these questions? I'm happy to take suggestions and give credit (and links) to those who suggest questions I end up using. This is for all of us, after all!
