Editorial Reviews

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.
