Global music star Adele reportedly splurged at a London bookshop to create the perfect home library worthy of a Zoom backdrop.
The 33-year-old hitmaker hoped to keep her bookshelf credibility in check – something that became a hot topic for celebs as they navigated lockdown.
Keen-eyed viewers were offered a snap into a variety of homes – with the all-important library setting becoming a source of conversation.
And it seems Adele was looking to up her game as she was spotted stepping into an upscale bookshop and announcing to staff “I want a library”.
A source tells The Daily Mail : “She came to the Chelsea branch of Daunt Books with a friend.
“All the staff loved it when she walked in wearing sunglasses and looking like a superstar. She pulled books from the shelves without even looking at the spines or reading the blurb and stacked them next to the register.
“I said, ‘You buy a lot of books,’ and she said, ‘Yes, I want a library’.” The total bill is reported to have been £1,000.
But the Hello singer was already showing off some of her random books while appearing on Zoom during the pandemic, with titles like London Blitzed: Drugs In The Third Reich.
The singer was recently asked about her book collection in a video interview with Vogue at her home in LA.
The diverse collection included the titles The Mosaics Of Rome and Japanese Prints. “There are some good ones up there,” she said as the camera panned the shelves.
When the interviewer asked, “Can you tell a lot about a person from the books they keep?” Adele replied, “Well, I would say that, but I don’t know many people who have actual books in their house, do you.” seem to have a Kindle or not reading at all or on their phone.”
Meanwhile, Adele has previously credited a self-help book with helping her find “joy, happiness and freedom”.
The singer posted a photo of the book to Instagram and explained how Untamed: Stop Pleasing, Start Living, from the New York Times Bestselling Author Glennon Doyle made her brain tremble and “soul scream”.
The “Someone Like You” singer, who recently caused outrage from fans after canceling her Las Vegas residency, credited the book with giving her a new perspective on how to live and being less “stressed and disheveled , confused and unselfish”.
She told her followers: “If you are ready – this book will shake your brain and make your soul scream. I am so ready for myself after reading this book! It’s like flying into my body for the very first time. Phew !”
