Beth Behrs Shows Us Her Home Library (and Banjo!) in 'Shelf Portrait'

Beth Behrs shows Marie Claire her book collection in the latest episode of 'Shelf Portrait.' Find out her favorite books and order them for yourself here.

Beth Behrs’s home library is bright, filled with special momentos, and overall #goals in Marie Claire’s latest episode of Shelf Portrait, where celebrities, influencers, and famous bookworms invite us inside their homes to show off their personal libraries.

The actress, best known for her role in 2 Broke Girls, takes us inside her personal library, which, much to her husband’s dismay, has yet to be organized by author and genre (the couple had just moved into their house at the time of filming). Nonfiction is Behrs’s preferred genre. We discover some of her favorite books are Glennon Doyle’s Untamed (Behrs considers it her bible), Carol Burnett’s This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection, Tara Swart’s The Source: The Secrets of the Universe, the Science of the BrainLaurent Dubois’s The Banjo: America’s African Instrument, Mary Oliver’s Devotions, and Maira Kalman’s The Principles of Uncertainty. Kalman’s book was gifted to her by the late Joan Rivers.

In the video, we also find out that one of Behrs’s quarantine hobbies is learning how to play the banjo, which has always been her favorite instrument, and she and her husband visit a local bookstore whenever they travel to a new city.

Watch Behrs’s full Shelf Portrait video (above), then order some of her favorite books for yourself (below).
