American writer J.D. Salinger's personal items sell almost as fast as his books. In 2010, the Salinger's white, porcelain toilet was listed on eBay. The seller had the toilet imported from the late writer's New Hampshire home and listed it for $1 million. The auction had a letter of authenticity attached to it. Many believe that Salinger sat on his porcelain throne to conceive some of the material he wrote about.
