NEW YORK (AP) — Nancy Pearl, an author and former librarian much loved in the library and book-selling communities, has a deal with Amazon.com to return obscure works back to print.

The online retailer announced Wednesday that Pearl will oversee the Book Lust Rediscoveries series, which will release about six books a year chosen by Pearl. The series is named for Pearl’s “Book Lust,” a word-of-mouth hit about her passion for reading.

Pearl is a former Seattle librarian who has picked up a national following and is a regular commentator on NPR.
