I know, as a person working in publishing that has a master’s degree in library science I should rue Amazon and it’s e-book revolution.

However, as a consumer and avid reader? I can’t seem to do anything but marvel at how they are seeking to fulfill my book needs. Celebrity librarian Nancy Pearl is curating a new series for Amazon called Book Lust Rediscoveries:

Book Lust Rediscoveries is a series devoted to reprinting some of the best (and now out of print) novels originally published between 1960-2000. Each book is personally selected by Nancy Pearl and includes an introduction by her, as well as discussion questions for book groups and a list of recommended further reading.

The first title is available (and free to borrow if you’re an Amazon Prime member).

Needless to say A Gay and Melancholy Sound is now on my summer reading list!
