Michael Jackson, Reader
Yes, yes, everyone's sick of all the Michael Jackson coverage, but Carolyn Kellogg of the Los Angeles Times actually found a new angle on the pop star's tragic life and death: Michael Jackson loved books.
Book stores throughout Los Angeles recalled that he was a frequent visitor when he was in town, sometimes asking the stores to close a few minutes early so he could browse untroubled by fans. He loved poetry, Ralph Waldo Emerson in particular, and according to his lawyer, was quite well-read in psychology, literature and history. At the time of his death, his collection amounted to 10,000 books.
