6 celebrity shelfies that are making us feel seriously uncultured

Celebrities have been sharing shelfies from their home offices, showing off their impressive bookshelves and magnificent desks


When the One World concert took place last weekend, celebrities performed from their homes, giving us a rare glimpse into their impressive mansions.

We saw John Legend’s Grammy room, Taylor Swift’s chintz wallpaper and Matthew McConaughey’s home office — which surprisingly looked straight out of the 1990s.

Now, more celebrities are broadcasting from their home offices, and displaying their top bookshelf picks.

Here are six celeb shelfies that are making us seriously jealous:

J.K. Rowling

Of course, the creator of Harry Potter has the most whimsical set up.

J.K. Rowling’s green and gold bookshelf takes up an entire wall in her office, displaying an iconic Edmund Spenser quote above it all. #goals

Bryan Dobson

RTÉ’s Morning Ireland presenter, Bryan Dobson has quite an intimidating collection.

His claim to fame must-reads include titles by James Joyce and travel author Eric Newby.

Kate Middleton

Swipe right to see the Duchess of Cambridge’s book collection, photographed while she was phoning charities in need of support during the current pandemic.

Her desk is lined with ornate classics like Sense and Sensibility, A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Odyssey.

Nicola Sturgeon

It appears that the First Minister of Scotland can’t get enough of Ian Rankin.

She showed true Scottish pride in her shelfie, stocked with books by Val McDermid, Christopher Brookmyre and Ali Smith.

Cindy Crawford

American model and actress Cindy Crawford shared two selfies in her home office: a stunning Insta-ready photo in nude pink pumps and a glam, IRL messy desk pic that we can all relate to. 

Her bookshelf, shown behind her, has some books at the top, but is mostly lined with photos of her friends and family.

Prince Charles

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall currently reside in Clarence House, a gorgeous 19th century palace with a grand bookcase.

It can be seen in the background of Prince Charles’ recent video, thanking hospitals like Ysbyty Calon Y Ddraig, the Dragon’s Heart Hospital that recently opened in Cardiff.
