A nifty website for readers

I've finished a few books that are sitting here awaiting my review, but I've been feeling a little lazy. In the meantime though, I wanted to share with anyone out there a website that readers might enjoy.

The site is: and all you do is put in the title of the last book you read (or any book you enjoyed) and the name of the author, and the site will pop out some suggestions based on what other readers have recommended.

So if you're ever stumped for something new to go pick up, try out the site!

An example? I put in The Time Traveler's Wife and got back these 10 suggestions:

EVA Moves the Furniture - Margot Livesey
Children of God - Mary Doria Russell
The Distance Between Us - Maggie O'Farrell
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud - Ben Sherwood
Blackberry Wine - Joanne Harris
Brother of the More Famous Jack - Barbara Trapido
The Laments - George Hagen

The Bonesetters Daughter - Amy Tan
The Confessions of Max Tivoli - Andrew Sean Greer
The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing - Melissa Bank

You can also register and begin your own book list which will contribute to the recommendations for others. Enjoy!
