What a great idea. I got this for my father, who never knows what to get from the library. Well, I liked it so much, I got one for myself. I can highlight the books that look interesting to me, or check out the genres, subjects. A wonderful concept and very well written. Now neither Dad nor I can complain about "what do I read now?"

Both Book Lust and More Book Lust are just fun! You can read straight though the books or just read the categories that most interest you.

Fellow Pirate with MORE Lust Than I
A fantastic reference book filled with over 1000 titles by specific categories for every mood: Arctic adventure, Armchair Travel, Fantasy by the truckload, Gay/Lesbian Literature, For the Cat Lover. Books on almost every country (and every state in her follow up "More Book Lust"). Fiction and nonfiction abound. My bounty grew and Pearl lead me to some great treasures, including a list of other bibliographies, which drenched my lust for even more books. She includes a brief description of most books and throws a few other titles in each category that are simply "too good to miss". Both of her books include featured authors. Naturally, these are her personal picks, but heed this advise: plunder her pages. You won't regret it.
