Lusting for more wiki action

Posted by Kristi Heim at 11:59 AM

Here's a topic that promises to spur some online conversations: Nancy Pearl and her Book Lust empire is one of the newest wiki sites on Wetpaint. The beloved Seattle librarian is the subject of what Seattle start-up Wetpaint calls "a community for people who love books."

The wiki is apparently a team effort by Wetpaint and Pearl's publisher, Sasquatch Books, the Puget Sound Business Journal reports.

I like the feature that lets you "post a question for Nancy." So what does she think it takes to be well-read? A large dose of Shakespeare (King Lear, Hamlet, or MacBeth), some Herman Melville (Moby Dick), the poems of Walt Whitman, The Apology by Plato, and Oedipus Rex by Sophocles.

For a different kind of book lover, there's an entire wiki devoted to the DaVinci Code.
