When asked Nancy Pearl for her own six-word memoir, Pearl (without skipping a beat) said, "Girl discovers reading, then discovers life." Pearl's memorable memoir provides the inspiration for this sophisticated journal, a blank slate for all your thoughts. A modern and beautiful take on the ever-popular reading journal, here are pages for your own six-word-or six-thousand-word-memoir. Nancy Pearl, author of the best-selling Book Lust series (over 200,000 copies sold, see page 23), was named 2010 ALA librarian of the year and received a PNBA Lifetime Achievement Award the same year. She regularly discusses and recommends books on NPR's Morning Edition and lectures widely on the topics of books and reading. She is librarian-at-large with the King County Library System in the Seattle area.
