Celebrity Book Recommendations
Are you a reader that also follows favorite celebrities? Then you might also be interested in what they're reading. Ever since Oprah started her successful book club (was their a celebrity before her that recommended books?), various celebrity book clubs have come and gone. It's hard work to read enough books to be able to pick one a month as a recommendation for 'the world' to read. As I'm looking to expand my Celebrity Reading Lists (see the Reading List tab at the top of the page), here are a few celebrity reading lists I've come across.

Complete, updated book club lists for Reese Witherspoon, Oprah, and GMA (Good Morning America), are located at the Reading List tab at the top of the page. There's also a BJ Reading List which is all the themed reading lists I've compiled. I'll work on getting pages for the above celebrity full reading lists as well.
There are SO many books and authors here that I've never heard of which once again shows the absolutely huge volume of books available to read! Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
