Book Nerds Holla Back


Ok, if you really like books and getting recommendations for new books to read I have found the site for you. I've been looking for a while at different library pages for recommendations (I know, the nerdiness is overwhelming, but read on), and occasionally I look up a book I like on Amazon.com and see if they recommend anything I would like too. Although I use these ones they have never really satisfied my desire, because what I've always wanted was a book recommendation search engine based off of books you already like. Amazon is annoying because sometimes you search a book and it just gives recommendations by what else the author wrote not the genre. But the annoyances and wasteful internet searches have stopped.

Go to www.whatshouldireadnext.com, who would have thought, it's such a tricky name, tee he.

It's awesome. You can ask for suggestions, catalog books you like which the site keeps on record, and you can even highlight certain books off your own book list and get a recommendation off of the ones you highlighted.

Check it out.
