Checked out from the St. Louis Public Library - Carondelet branch.

This book is equal parts inspiring and exhausting - it left me calculating the approximate years I might live and the approximate number of books I might be able to read before I die. And now I find myself in an outright panic that I will never finish all the books I would ever want to read.

While this book might seem like a one-time reference, I am seriously considering adding it to my personal library. Why? I was surprised to find a number of categories that I am not terribly interested in now, but would have devoured a few years ago. I can only imagine that in a few years, I will be interested in categories I only gave a quick glance-over in this read.

All said, Nancy Pearl is a goddess.
