This list is much longer than what we have.

Anyone know the back story? Should we add them?

The article's link to the Christie's auction listing seems to list the books from Lots 501 and onward. Each lot potentially includes multiple volumes, I didn't want to take the time now to click through each to match up with the annotated list from the article. But I think that could be done.

However, there isn't much detail about each lot: just "personal property of Marilyn Monroe".

The link "Buy Catalogue" wasn't helpful, couldn't actually find the auction catalogue to determine if it would provide more detail.

Another article about Marilyn Monroe's "massive" library of 400 or more books and some photos of her posing with them as if she is reading.

>4 Keeline: "Her library had more than 400 books carefully curated by an avid and conscientious reader."

I will refrain from saying anything, because if I do it will be thoroughly disrespectful of the article's author, one Saila Marcos.
