Library Resources – Pearl’s Picks


I am sure that you have heard of the Librarian Action figure and have probably made fun of the fact that such a thing exists (I personally own two of them!) Well, the lady behind that action figure is the amazing librarian named Nancy Pearl. She is the author of the best selling Book Lust and now has a teen version called Book Crush. She has become the most celebrated of librarians, and when she goes on tour, she speaks to a standing room-only crowd.

Each month Ms. Pearl publishes a recommended book list called Pearl’s Picks that you can locate on the Books Movies and More section of our website. Within that list, you will find detailed and honest reviews of 12 books. Many people from all over the country use this list to determine what book they are going to read next.

One of the books that she reviews this month is A Darker Domain by Val McDermid. In her review she says “This is a novel that reinforces my belief that you learn something from every book you read…” and that this novel is a real treat for mystery fans.

So, the next time you are in a quandary as to which book you want to read next, head to the Las Vegas Clark County Library District website and take a look at what Nancy Pearl recommends…you won’t be disappointed!

Edited 11/2009: Pearl's Picks is no longer available from the publisher. Please check the Books Movies and More! page for more great suggestions!
