Now Read This IIPosted: 2013/12/09
Pearl, Nancy. Now Read This II: a guide to Mainstream Fiction, 1990 – 2001. Greenwood village, Colorado: Libraries Unlimited, 2002.
Now Read This II is set up much like Now Read This I and why shouldn’t it be? The first one was a success. Like the first Now Read This the second is broken up into four different sections: setting, story, characters and language. The wealth of information about each title is still there: title, author, publisher, date of publication, brief abstract, second appeal, subject list, other recommendations, Oprah selection, good for book groups, and whether or not is was a prize winner. Like the first NRT I am intrigued by the titles and wish I could add them to my challenge.
Reason read: This is the second half of the Now Read This series
Author fact: I’m sure this is news to no one. Nancy Pearl has her own action figure, complete with shushing capabilities.
Book trivia: I particularly liked the section on how to hold a book group discussion.
