More Book Lust: 1,000 New Reading Recommendations for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason

Overview

The response to Nancy Pearl’s surprise bestseller Book Lust was astounding: the Seattle librarian even became the model for the now-famous Librarian Action Figure. Readers everywhere welcomed Pearl’s encyclopedic but discerning filter on books worth reading, and her Rule of 50 (give a book 50 pages before deciding whether to continue; but readers over 50 must read the same number of pages as their age) became a standard MO.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Celebrity librarian" Nancy Pearl's Book Lust was not only a word-of-mouth bestseller; it earned her the 2004 Women's National Book Award. This follow-up offers hundreds of new suggested titles, organized in nearly 150 eclectic categories like "The Autobiographical Gesture," "Plots for Plotzing," and "Nagging Mothers, Crying Children." Quirky and intelligent, this wonderfully informal reference is a superb resource for everyone who cares about books.
From the Publisher
"a tour de force that would thrill any list maker. . . . This is one lusty librarian." –Los Angeles Times "Nancy Pearl is the talk of librarian circles." --The New York Times "Nancy Pearl has pretty much become the librarian version of a rock star
Library Journal
Pearl's enthusiasm for good reading seems never to end. The well-known librarian has updated her best-selling Book Lust with approximately 120 more reviews to help satisfy the appetite of voracious readers or simply encourage more people to read. Like its predecessor, this book is an excellent choice for librarians and teachers who make recommendations for various interests, but many readers will simply enjoy the colloquial chatter about books, some of them grouped by author or by topic but some "just too good to miss." Readers unfamiliar with town and school libraries will appreciate "Dewey Deconstructed," a chapter introducing Dewey Decimal system cataloging and great books found in each numerical grouping. From Adapting to Adoption to Your Tax Dollars at Work, Pearl recommends a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction. If Pearl's book does not encourage reading, nothing will! Highly recommended for public and school libraries. [This spring, Pearl will embark on a ten-city tour to promote this book.-Ed.]-Carolyn M.
