Art Garfunkel and Reading

This is just too precious to pass up.  While visiting the blog,  Marginal Revolution today, a pointer to a site which lists all the books Art Garfunkel has read since 1968 caught my eye. Definitely worth a visit to browse through the 1084 books.  I'm not a huge fan of Art Garfunkel's music even when he was partnered with Paul Simon, but I sure would love a chance to consult with him on the acquisition of all the first edition, first printing, English, of his reading list for his home library and legacy!   A lifetime reading list offers amazing insight into anyone's mind, brain and soul.

First two on the list, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Confessions, followed by Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving.

Last two on the list from 2009, Giambattista Vico, New Science and Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck.
