Nancy Pearl – Award Winning Readers’ Advisor

Readers’ Advisory guru Nancy Pearl has been awarded a Lifetime Achievement award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.

Nancy Pearl has long been a leading light in the world of readers’ advisory and an ardent promoter of leisure reading. Nancy is probably the only librarian to have inspired her own action figure!

One of Nancy’s many contributions to the world of leisure readers are her Book Lust books. These fun books provide reading suggestions in the form of loosely connected lists on a wide range of of topics and appeal. Some of the lists lean toward the more traditional – I Love Mysteries, Armchair Travel, Sea Stories… Other lists are more creative – Great Dogs in Fiction, Balkan Specters, Bomb Makers, Bird Brains, Epistolary Novels : take a letter…

The wide variety of lists contained in each book make it very likely that any given reader will find something to pique their literary curiosity. It can be a great resource for when you want to find something completely outside of your usual reading habits.

Thank you Nancy Pearl and congratulations !
