Book Crush

Nancy Pearl, the famous model for the Librarian Action Figure and wonderful speaker on behalf of reading, has published a new book.  Previously she had done a couple of books for adults filled with recommended reads.  Now she has written Book Crush, a book filled with over 1,000 recommended reads for children and adults. 

We can all cheer one paragraph in the article about the book:

“There’s no rhyme or reason” why some books become best-sellers while
other, better contenders languish, she said. She prefers to highlight
“books under the radar that if life were fair, would be read.”

Don’t we all have examples of that!
