The response to Nancy Pearl's surprise bestseller Book Lust
was astounding: the Seattle librarian and winner of the
2004 Women's National Book Award 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.
Once again organized by topic, this sprightly follow-up
includes an array of titles in nearly 150 eclectic
categories, including Plots for Plotzing (highly unusual
storylines), Animal Love (in which humans fall in love with
animals), The Autobiographical Gesture (memoirs about
complex lives), Child Prodigies (child characters who are
called on to perform great and sometimes heroic acts),
Nagging Mothers, Crying Children (true tales from the
frontlines of parenting), and Libraries and Librarians.
Both a valuable reference and a vastly enjoyable read, More
Book Lust offers a wealth of enthusiastic, quirky reading
