"The doyen of all professional book recommenders (aside from Oprah, that is) is Nancy Pearl, a Seattle librarian who's a regular on NPR and has published several books of tips under the "Book Lust" rubric … Pearl is so iconic that when the Archie McPhee novelty company decided to create a librarian action figure, they modeled it after her."

"As in the other volumes in her "Book Lust" series, the idea is very simple. Pearl, a former Seattle librarian, suggests books in various categories. She gives the impression of having read almost everything, and her recommendations are varied and exhaustive. She offers something for everyone’s taste — romantic novels, mysteries, histories, sportsbooks, travel books, comics, poetry and so forth." —Mansfield News Journal
