Lust-ful Librarian Takes It Online

nancy-pearl.jpgIf you were wondering what Nancy Pearl (right), the Seattle librarian who parlayed “book lust” into several books and her own action figure, has been up to lately, wonder no more! She’s created a new wiki-format website, also called Book Lust, that invites readers to make up lists of the ten books they’d take to a desert island, comment on book club recommendations, and find out what Pearl herself is reading (although it appears she hasn’t had a chance to update that page since September, maybe because she’s been too busy having fun on her Australian tour). The site is hosted by Wetpaint, a Seattle-based technology company that claims to “combine the best aspects of wikis, blogs, forums and social networks” for personal websites on all sorts of subjects.
