Ladies and Gentlemen, Your 2017 Celebrity Picks

Mini-Grid250Are celebrities just like us, the normal people? Of course they're not. How many of us boast Twitter accounts with millions of followers, our own television show, or even a Lamborghini? Maybe one out of three is a reasonable dream for us—they seem to hand out food shows to just about anyone—but all three? Then you're breathing rarefied air. Celebrity air.

But there's at least one thing we have in common with the star set: We like books. And like we've done the past several years, we've collected reading lists from celebrities-turned-authors who supplement their incomes as actors, politicians, politicians' daughters, chefs, TV personalities, historians, newspeople, and comedians. There are even a few contributors who became famous through writing.

So slip on a vicarious pair of reading glasses and browse the selection of luminaries below, or look here for the latest celebrity favorites.
