Turns out books, not diamonds, are a girl’s best friend. Marilyn Monroe: actress, singer, blonde bombshell, and … avid reader. In 1999, Marilyn Monroe’s personal library was auctioned, and in 2010 the list of books was published online. People were surprised at her big collection of American literature, French classics, modern plays, poetry, books on religion and spirituality … the list goes on. So last month, I chose three books from Marilyn’s shelf and decided to read them. What did I discover? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out. Hope you enjoy!

As always, a full transcription of the episode is available on my blog, Angourie’s Library. PLUS EXTRA GOODIES FOR YOU TO CHECK OUT! Such as links to photos, articles, and books I referenced in the episode.
