Book Seer

I can’t decide whether to be excited or annoyed that somebody else has come up with the same idea I’ve been playing around with for several months now in my dissertation research. Well, the beauty of the web is that they can slap a quick implementation up overnight, whereas it’s going to be months if not years before I really get my work out into the open. Where my six professional readers can really delve into it.

So while we’re waiting for that glorious day, we can play around with Book Seer, a recommendation site that asks you for a book and then scrapes Amazon and LibraryThing to suggest further reading for you. Neat!
