I read the original and this sequel both in one day ... or I should say I was mostly skimming by the time I was on the second volume. Good reference to have when I'm wondering what to read next.

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!) ( )

In More Book Lust author and librarian, Nancy Pearl continues her fantastic listing of books that she began in Book Lust. By dividing the book into interesting sub-sections with intriguing titles like “Gone Fishin’”, “Tickle Your Funny Bone” and “Gallivanting in the Graveyard” she keeps the lists short and the book easy to pick up and put down.

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. ( )

Good and interesting, with lots of suggestions, still (as in book one) a bit out-fashioned and some categories wouldn't have been necessary for me, but okay: no need to argue about tastes... ( )

Great fun for bibliophiles. Ideas for all types of reading, at all times, in all moods, under any subject banner. ( )

I have to admit, my tastes run very different than Pearl's. Anyone who likes Neal Stephenson's recent work, for instance, has a great deal more patience for stiltedness and self-indulgence than I do. But, she's clearly passionate about books and even though I can't trust her evaluations, her descriptions are usually good enough for me to finish this book with a long list of new likelies. ( )
