Chelsea Handler Shows Us Her Dreamy Bookshelf in 'Shelf Portrait'

Actress and comedian Chelsea Handler shows Marie Claire her bookshelf in the latest episode of 'Shelf Portrait.' Find out her favorite books and order them for yourself here.

Chelsea Handler's massive bookshelf is every book lover's dream, and one of her favorite authors is Haruki Murakami. These are just a couple tidbits we learn from the comedian and actress in Marie Claire's latest episode of Shelf Portrait (opens in new tab), where celebrities, influencers, and famous bookworms invite us inside their homes to show off their personal libraries.

During the tour, Handler reveals she recently read Isabel Wilkerson's Caste (opens in new tab), which she (and Oprah!) highly recommend. For a much lighter read, she loves David Sedaris's collection of short stories, Naked (opens in new tab), that Handler says is "f*cking funny" and "will make you laugh." Additionally, she has a deep appreciation for Pachinko (opens in new tab) by Min Jin Lee and the biography of Fredrick Douglass (opens in new tab), which she finally finished. There are, however, some books she's embarrassed she hasn't read in full, like Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children (opens in new tab).

Watch Handler's full Shelf Portrait video, above, to see her dreamy bookshelf for yourself, then order some of her favorite books, below.
