Barbara Cartland waves at her books

Romance novel author Barbara Cartland waves at a wall of books in her home in 1994. Presumably they're all HER books: She is said to have published more than 700 books in her lifetime. Barbara Cartland was born in 1901, so she turned 93 the year this photo was taken. She made it to the 2000s, dying at the jolly age of 98 on May 21, 2000.
