The benefits of frequent reading range from improved memory to the simple pleasure of enjoying a good story. Finding a compelling book to read, however, can be difficult. The website http://www.WhatShouldIReadNext.com is one of many that provide readers with suggestions based on authors and titles similar to works they have read before.
Other websites, like http://www.GoodReads.com, take a more general approach to making reading suggestions. The website, a favorite among book clubs, students, and publishers alike, provides lengthy suggestion lists that range in subject from genre to notable upcoming releases. Finally, http://www.whichbook.net takes a reader’s mood into account prior to making suggestions. Users of the site can toggle between moods such as optimistic and bleak, as well as between story descriptors like unexpected or down to earth.
