Marci S. (MarciNYC) reviewed Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason on
Helpful Score: 11
While I got some good reading recommendations out of this book, they've been hit or miss for me. I debated long and hard about making this a part of my permanent collection, but for now I can go skim it at Border's and get ideas if I should lose my wishlist at Amazon. Not a keeper, but worth a skim to find books to add to Mount TBR. (Like I need more books!)
Nancy Pearl is a goddess among librarians. I've read this book before, but I enjoyed reading it again. It's a great book for when I feel like I don't know what I want to read. It covers just about everything you can imagine, from hefty histories and biographies, to classic literature, to popular fiction, to graphic novels and more. I especially like how enthusiastic she is about reading and books. There isn't any genre that she feels is beneath her, including romances and chick lit, two genres that many hardcore readers love to hate. Reading Nancy Pearl reminds me why I love to read.
