Nancy Pearl sells books: hers and those of the authors she recommends.Book Lust To Gois 120 places to read about before you go. Consider the entry Indicative of Indonesia, in which Nancy Pearl urges travelers to read V.S. NaipaulsAmong the Believersand Christopher J. KochsThe Year of Living Dangerously. Wanderlust-y reading for prospective travelers to Ireland begins with the cheeky: Lets not start with James Joyce and just say we did, okay? then goes on to recommend such gems as Nuala OFaollinsAre you Somebody?and J. P. DunleavysIreland In All Her SinsandSome of Her Graces. This enthusiastic literary globetrotting includes stops in Korea, Sweden, Afghanistan, Albania, Parma, Patagonia, Texas, and Timbuktu. But Nancy Pearl is a reader and a librarian, not a travel agent, so she cant resist recommending reading for Travel to Imaginary Places (including Ursula K. LeGuinsThe Wizard of Earthseaand Michael ChabonsThe Yiddish Policemans Union) and stories of chucking it all and moving to Spain or Greece under the heading So We/I Bought (or Built) a House In . . . Book Lust To Gobrings Pearls amazing ability to summon the perfect book to connect with a particular interest with the art of having an adventure whether it requires a passport or just an armchair.
