Having trouble finding a good book to read?
There is an interesting site on-line in which you type the name and author of the last book you read (that you enjoyed) and it will provide a list of books you might like to read. It is called the Book Seer, and may be found at http://bookseer.com/.
It actually just gave me some interesting authors and books to try. But not everyone is enthralled with it, apparently, as comments on the Guardian imply. However, they do go on to bring up some interesting thoughts regarding how we choose what we're going to read next??
But I don't want to look too deeply into my motivations or methods for choosing a book....I just want one that will hold my interest, not pablum feed me with stunted vocabulary, and hopefully tickle my brain matter somewhere on a continuum from teasing to enthralled. I don't ask for much, just something more than a plot I can figure out in the first 20 pages, or a biography by someone who really has nothing valuable to say, or a non-fiction book that should have been just a pamphlet. I can only imagine how many people I might have just offended, but we each have our own preferences. That's why there are so many books!
