A staple in modern book coverage is the list of what acclaimed authors are reading.

We’re soon, though, to have the reading habits of many a long-ago writer at our fingertips.

Princeton University is working to digitize records from Paris’s Shakespeare and Company bookstore, which lent books to such literary luminaries as Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Simone de Beauvoir, and many more.

Princeton has information about the project on its website, and you can catch up on the history of Shakepeare and Company in the Guardian.
