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.
Nancy Pearl created the program "If All of Seattle Read the Same Book," which has spread across America. She talks about books and reading on NPR’s Morning Edition and on other public radio stations. She lives in Seattle.
"a tour de force that would thrill any list maker. . . . This is one lusty librarian." –Los Angeles Times "Nancy Pearl is the talk of librarian circles." --The New York Times "Nancy Pearl has pretty much become the librarian version of a rock star
