It's week 37 in our 52 Books Quest and I have a case of Book Lust. To me, reading is as necessary as breathing. Without my books, I get very cranky. I love the stories that make you sigh as well as the ones that make you hold your breath and forget to let it out. The ones that grab you and pull you into the world of the characters, the ones that make you want to dive into the world of the book and not let go. The ones that make you think, and the ones that make you laugh out loud or cry.
The ones that make you wish you had the imagination to write, along with the ones that make you want to throw them across the room for various reasons. The ones that stay with you long after you've finished the book. And the ones that make you want to revisit them over and over again.
If you can't tell by now, I have a case of book lust which brings me to Nancy Pearl, the author of Book Lust and so much more.
It was just announced that The National Book Foundation will be presenting to Nancy Pearl the 2021 Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community on Nov 17, 2021.
Book Lust, More Book Lust, and Book Lust to Go are so much fun to peruse, but I have to admit to getting lost in rabbit trails while looking up books which of course had lead to a startling long wishlist and an ever growing TBR stack. Pearl even has a Book Lust Journal in which to record your thoughts on stories. Check out Pearl's Podcasts, her interview on How Reading Informs the Person That You Are, and the Millions interview about her first fictional novel George and Lizzie and Getting Out of Her Own Skin.
I’m still ensconced in Darynda Jones world of Charley Davidson and currently on book #11 Eleventh in the Grave. Once I’m through with the wild and wacky world of the grim reaper, angels and demons, ghosts, mystery and murder, J.D. Robb’s latest in her Eve Dallas series Forgotten in Death is waiting in the wings.
Books I've added to my virtual stacks are Heather Grahams second book in her Krewe of Hunters series Heart of Evil and the 2nd book in S.K, Dunstall's Stars Uncharted series Stars Beyond and book lust lead me to getting 10 urban fantasies as well as military romances from the freebie list Karen posted the other day.
