Let Readgeek Engine Decide What Book you should Read Next

Running out of novels on your “To Read” list? Readgeek, an online book recommendation engine, aids readers in selecting a book based on past preferences, reports GalleyCat.

The engine is essentially the Pandora radio for books. Upon visiting the site, users must rate a grouping of books they may have read in the past, and based on these ratings a bookshelf of recommendations is selected. The more ratings you give, the more accurate the selection becomes.

You can also rate the suggested titles, which hones the engine’s ability to select books for you even more. This allows Readgeek to learn your preferences and give you an accurate bookshelf that you can pick a recommendation from.

I know I’m excited to see what Readgeek recommends for me, as I imagine many other readers are. Will you be testing out the beta version?

I mean, don't Amazon and Goodreads and a bunch of other sites already do this?

plus, visiting this website with its bookshots has exploded my reading list to the point where I don't need any more recommendations - certainly not in this lifetime.
