If you’ve ever booked a flight on Priceline.com, you probably didn’t know that Jay Walker, the original founder/inventor of Priceline.com has the one of the most amazing personal libraries.
In 2008, Wired.com was the first publication given access to Walker’s library.
“Nothing quite prepares you for the culture shock of Jay Walker’s library. You exit the austere parlor of his New England home and pass through a hallway into the bibliographic equivalent of a Disney ride. Stuffed with landmark tomes and eye-grabbing historical objects—on the walls, on tables, standing on the floor—the room occupies about 3,600 square feet on three mazelike levels.”
