If you're reading this blog, you are a book lover like me...which means that you cannot get enough of recommendations for great books.
Nancy Pearl, retired Seattle librarian and author of all of the great book compilations shown above, has just been named as Library Journal's Librarian of the Year. Pearl also has the claim to fame as the only librarian with her own action figure!
As a long-time library patron (Multnomah County, where I live, has the highest circulation in the country--for 8 years running), I am thrilled to see Nancy Pearl get such a fine recognition. I own the first two Book Lust books, but am dying to get my hands on Book Lust to Go, to update our outdated literary traveling guide. (I will probably support Nancy Pearl in spirit and get it out of the library!)
