MLK's Library

Interesting to view the idiosyncratic personal library of Martin Luther King Jr here.   The lack of Thoreau surprised me, given the shared non-violence aspect.  No Shakespeare or Dickens and very little fiction of any kind.  He was a man on a mission.

I share only 7 books in common:

  Lectures on the Harvard classics by William Allan Neilson
  Inside U.S.A by John Gunther
  John Adams and the American Revolution by Catherine Drinker Bowen
  The robe by Lloyd C. Douglas
  The four loves by C. S. Lewis
  Paradise Lost by John Milton
  The adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
