What is a "Book Pearl"?

Reading is my life. I find myself reading wherever I go. As a librarian, I seek out books that make me laugh, provoke emotion and insight into new ways of thinking and living. These are the pearls - those bits of text that stay alive in your mind. Like a pearl, they are the well-written words that simply and beautifully nestle in your mind and slowly push you to beyond your way of thinking.
