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.
Although I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first, she still managed to enlarge my wish list. I liked the manner in which she describes each book, neither giving away too much or too little. Unfortunately many of the books she highly recommends are out of print and very difficult to track down.
If you, like me, are a lover of lists and books then More Book Lust is certainly worth a browse.
Oh, and I have adopted the Nancy Pearl rule - EXCEPT when it's for book club or a class - take your age and subtract it from 100. That is the number of pages you must read before you give up on a book. (If you're 100 years old you may judge a book by its cover!)
