During COVID-19, celebrities have been inadvertently revealing their reading habits during at-home interviews staged from the smartest spot in everyone’s house: in front of the bookshelf.

While this is a great way to look polished, professional and knowledgeable, what do your books say about you?

The New York Times has been following celebrities’ quarantine interviews amid COVID-19 and has reported some interesting findings – which they describe as interesting, embarrassing and impressive. Here are a few of my favorite takeaways:

  • Cate Blanchett owns the entire “Oxford English Dictionary” – all 20 volumes, 21,728 pages and 171,476 words.
  • Paul Rudd, who once starred in a guest appearance on the hit TV show “Veronica Mars,” owns “Slave Day,” by Rob Thomas – creator of the hit TV show, “Veronica Mars.”
  • Stacey Abrams has a copy of “The Night Tiger,” by Yangsze Choo, which features a plot following the search for a severed finger and a supernatural tiger.

My favorite highlights from my own bookshelf include “Where to Drink Coffee: The Expert’s Guide To The Best Coffee in the World” with insights from 150 coffee experts; “The Woman in the Window” by A.J. Finn, a heart-racing thriller from the perspective of an agoraphobic; and “This Will Only Hurt a Little,” a deeply personal celebrity memoir by Busy Philipps.
