Megan Mullally: "I'm on a classics binge. I'm reading F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night, which is set in the '20s—glamorous hotels, glamorous women, a scandalous affair. It's juicy."

Robert Downey Jr.: "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man [by John Perkins] and Under the Black Flag [by David Cordingly]—it's about pirates. And I've got a dictionary."

Fantasia Barrino: "Let me be honest—I hate reading! But I have [learned how]. A friend gave me Billie Holiday's Lady Sings the Blues, and I kid you not, I want to read it. She's an idol, and it's a page-turner. Thank God I'm reading!"

Ryan Seacrest: "This may be boring to you, but I'm reading Judgment of Paris—it's about the history of wine tasting. I love wine. I'm building a wine cellar in my new house."

Toni Collette: "I just read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, and it was one of the most amazing autobiographies I've ever read. It's beautiful."
