Literature-Map

An interesting idea. Supposed to show you authors you would enjoy reading if you enjoy reading the one you enter.

  1. As someone who’s not really had much joy with my goodreads recommendations (they seem more miss than hit for me), I was a bit sceptical about this at first. I also thought that if it did work, it would just reinforce my taste prejudices by recommending lots of “close matches” to authors I already liked. But I think it all depends how you use it – if you want to be a bit more adventurous, you can do that by clicking on authors whose names are not as close on the “map” to the author you started with, so you can start to go on a bit more of a “journey.”

    I messed around with the music one as well – which works on a similar principle and is also worth a look.
