Wednesday, June 29, 2011 : Personalized reading suggestions

   If you're like me, sometimes you know you want to read a book that is funny, or dark, or epic (whatever your mood is), but you just don't know exactly which book to choose. Well, has solved this problem.  This site has several sliding scales that you can personalize to fit your mood or desired reading experience, and then it generates book suggestions based on these choices.  But the great thing is that you don't have to just pick "happy" or "sad" or "short" or "long." You can narrow your choices down through 12 different sliding scales to find book suggestions that are just right for you.

   This site is seriously awesome!!  I tried out a few different combinations and it generated a lot of books that I had never heard of before.  Their database is very large and very diverse, which is great when you know you want to read something, but you're just not sure how to narrow it down.
