Who Reads What?

JS Online reports on this year's Who Reads What?, a list of celebrities' favorite books compiled by Maine librarian, Glenna Nowell.

Their responses ranged from the nice - Rosalynn Carter's favorite is the Bible - to the naughty: dirty joke books favored by writer Piers Anthony. . .

Many of the titles deal with more mainstream material. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed her joy in reading a biography of a giant of the high court's past, "John Marshall: Definer of a Nation," by Jean Edward Smith.

But she also recommends retired justice Sandra Day O'Connor and H. Alan Day's "Lazy B," the story of a girl who grew up to become a Supreme Court justice.
