Infographic shows favourite book choices of Queen Victoria, Madonna, Oprah Winfrey and more

Ever wondered what literature Oprah likes? Or perhaps what Richard Branson prefers to have on his bookshelf?

Luckily, you can now do exactly that with this rather handy infographic showing you the reading habits of famous personalities, including singers, politicians and sitcom characters.

The infographic authors pulled together the list based on articles and quotes from various celebrities, such as Madonna, Queen Victoria, Margaret Thatcher, Oprah, Barack Obama, and John Lennon.

On Madonna's list, you can spot the works by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac. Although it should be noted that the author of the Time Traveller's Wife isn't Richard and Judy(as stated on the image) but American novelist Audrey Niffenegger.

As for Margaret Thatcher, she prefers to get lost in various political tomes from former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Norman Stone, the adviser to Thatcher, as well as English philosopher John Stuart Mill's essay On Liberty.

However, Queen Victoria sticks to historical texts, with her list consisting of A Concise History of England and Clarendon's History of the Rebellion.

Further down, a familiar face from TV can also be spotted - Joey Tribbiani. Of course his reading is restricted to books on sandwiches, table football and acting. However, the one book we reckon is missing is Little Women.
