Powell’s Books to Sell 7,000 Books from Private Library of Anne Rice

annerice.jpgEver wanted to own a piece of vampire novelist Anne Rice? Powell’s Books will be selling 7,000 titles from Anne Rice’s private library.

Depending on the success of this venture, Powell’s may expand to in-store offerings as well. Right now, the site has posted more than 1000 titles, including Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion, and Homer‘s Odyssey.

Here’s more from the site: “Included in the collection are editions signed or annotated by Ms. Rice, and many have her library markings on the spines. The collection showcases her love of literature and writing and reveals a true intellectual curiosity — classic philosophy, the Brontes, biblical archaeology, and Louisiana history are just a few of the subject areas represented.”

Editor’s Note: This post was changed to correctly state that 1000, not 9 titles are currently available for sale on the site.
