Books on Books - Review and Giveaway

Where do you find awesome new (to you, not necessarily just published) books to read? Besides my lovely blog of course. Reviews are a great choice, goodreads is another one. What about books about books? It sounds silly, but reading books that are about books can help you find some great new books you otherwise would never have heard of. One of my favorites is the Book Lust series. There is Book Lust, More Book Lust, and Book Lust To Go, all by Nancy Pearl.

Soooo many books. Each book has a million different categories like Books About Teaching, Books that have female protagonists, Books about dinosaurs, Mothers and sons, Historical fiction for kids. I really like Southern Fiction and there is actually a section on that in the book. It lists Bastard Out of Carolina, The Prince of Tides, Charms for the Easy Life, and a ton of other books that are now on my to-read list. The great thing about the lists is that most of these books aren't extremely well-known. You are going to find lots of unknown book gems that I promise that you would never have heard of otherwise. 

Since I have way too many books on my to-read list already, I am giving away my copy of Book Lust. To win, just fill out the rafflecopter form below.

PS. In other news, The Lord of the Rings: 50th Anniversary, One Vol. Edition is currently on sale on amazon for $12.19. This is the edition I have because we are big Tolkien nerds in this house and you should probably have it on your bookshelf. That is all. Pin It
