Marilyn Monroe: Avid Reader, Writer & Book Collector - Part A

This is the first part of a two-part series on Marilyn Monroe's personal library. It is a much extended version of the challenge published by Jessica._martens in 2015. I have omitted a few magazines and brochures. If I had to create a new icon, I attempted to use a version of the work contemporaneous with M.M.'s adult years.
BTW, see if you can spot Kilroy in one of the icons.
