Neil Gaiman's Bookshelves

I love the name of this website: Shelfari.

Shelfari has always been a place where people come together to talk about their books. A place where you can show off your virtual bookshelf and where communities form around your favorite books and authors. It's no surprise to us that you can learn a lot about someone by seeing what's on his or her bookshelf.

Which is why we thought it would be fun to take a look at what's on the bookshelves of some of our favorite authors. What books do they love, or consider to have been particularly enlightening, informative or just plain fun? What books do they keep?

So we asked one of our all-time favorites, Neil Gaiman, if he'd be willing to give us a peek into his personal library, and he graciously agreed.

There are many more pictures here, and the cool thing is that they are large enough that you can zoom in and see the titles. That's quite the basement library!
