Good Reads ~ Check out the genre-specific lists or your friends' bookshelves, rate and review books, and create a wish list of future reads.
What Should I Read Next? ~ WSIRN? will generate a list of related books and authors based on a database of over 80,000 titles and more than one million reader recommendations.
Which Book? ~ This site is amazingly accurate! This site offers suggestions based on your mood -- gradient scales ranging from "Optimistic" to "Bleak," "Larger than life" to "Down to earth," and "Expected" to "Unpredictable," among others, let you set the tone of your next big (or small) read -- or on character, plot, and/or setting preferences.
