Welcome to the Pinup Book Club, a community dedicated to reading the books from Marilyn Monroe’s personal library, and appreciating pinup culture. Each month a new book from her library is read.

As an additional challenge, I will be finding copies of the same editions of each book she had, in order to recreate accurately her library.

Check out specific details of the editions of her books here:  http://www.librarything.com/catalog/marilynmonroelibrary

Here is the link to the main list of all 430 books (we will cross off each book as we read them). The list was compiled here by Booktryst and is based on an auction of her items.

Here is what we have read so far, and the month/year of reading. If you want to go back and read these books, you can, and join our Instagram discussion for the relevant books at any time!

In the future we hope to host other platforms for discussion right here on the blog, but for now all discussions take place directly on Instagram.
