4.0 out of 5 stars First Read, Then Talk 16 Dec 2003
By takingadayoff - Published on Amazon.com
I don't know what it is about Washington that makes book people flourish, but it is going on my short list of places I would like to live. First Amazon.com, then Nancy Pearl and her book Book Lust, and now Chapple Langemack checks in with The Booktalker's Bible.
Langemack's book is short in length, but long on practical advice. She covers booktalking (telling an audience about some great books they will want to read) from who should and shouldn't booktalk, to detailed checklists for your first talk. Her enthusiastic and conversational tone make this a quick read, and her book suggestions for different types of audiences had me writing down books to look up on my next trip to the library.
Langemack's common sense advice (don't talk about books you haven't read) and her experience in community theater add up to fun presentations that will allow you to be effective in sharing your love of books with others.
