Nancy Pearl's 'More Book Lust' gets 'Today' show nod

There will be even more book lust in July. Librarian Nancy's Pearl's second volume of her highly personal book picks, "More Book Lust," has been picked as the July featured title of the "Today" show book club.

It was chosen by best-selling suspense writer Lisa Scottoline.

Pearl, who recently left her longtime post at the Seattle Public Library, was in the NBC studios in New York Tuesday when the selection was announced. "This exciting moment is an open invitation for anyone to delve into the wonderful world of reading and find books to love," said Pearl.

"More Book Lust," published by Seattle's Sasquatch Books, follows in the trail of its best-selling predecessor, "Book Lust," which now has more than 80,000 copies in print. The new $16.95 paperback includes more than 1,000 book recommendations in 150 categories and lists.

"More Book Lust" is the second title by a Seattle author to be picked recently by "Today's" book club. Stephanie Kallos' debut novel, "Broken for You," was the club's January selection, chosen by popular novelist Sue Monk Kidd.
