Any more [book] recommendations?
On another forum, I read of a wonderful site http://whatshouldireadnext.com/ bravo! I put in the title of a book I particularly enjoyed and it came back with a list of books I might like. On that list were two that I'd read and enjoyed along with about 8 more that I haven't even heard of. Whoever designed this site should get a medal. bravo!

A great site. bravo!

You can only enter books it's heard of (maybe that Amazon UK has listed?) I tried to enter "No Great Mischief" by Alistair McLeod, and it said "No Match".

Still, excellent. The user-entered Book Lists on Amazon are also somewhat useful for finding matches, but not in the same way that "What Should I Read Next" is. The Amazon lists only reflect one person's tastes, but the read-next site merges the information from everyone's lists.

I started my own list, and tried to enter the "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" and it will only let me choose an audio CD version. What to do, what to do ... Other people have obviously chosen that one, and I bet they don't all mean the audio cd version, since this is a "Read Next" site, not "Listen to Next", so maybe I'll just pretend I didn't notice, and enter it anyway.

This database is cool, but needs about a zillion more members to make it really work; still, good idea.

I put in some of the books I have read recently, but it didn't have any suggestions. I guess I read obscure things.
