Not lists of the "1,001 Books You MUST Read Before You Die" variety—but lists that tell stories

This is a book of book lists. Lists that make you smile, make you wonder, and see titles together in entirely new ways. From Bin Laden's bookshelf to the books most frequently left in hotels, from prisoners' favorite books to Member of Parliaments' most borrowed books, these lists are proof that a person's bookcase tells you everything you need to know about them, and sometimes more besides.
