A little help here...

I have a problem...I LOVE to read! But I'll fully admit that I'm a huge book snob and I don't want to read something I think is dumb (I have high expectations when I actually get the chance to read). So...usually when I run into a book I like, I then proceed to read everything from that author and then think...well now what?

I've gotten a couple great recommendations, but like I said, I'm kind of picky about what I read, so I usually don't ask people so I don't hold it against them when I hate the book they recommended! Seriously, I know I have issues, you don't have to tell me!

So anyway, today I bumped into this one next (via Rare Bird Finds) and I think I am in love. You just enter a book you loved and it will spit out about 10 book titles you might like too based on users' suggestions. You can easily register to get a more detailed recommendation list based on a list of your favorites too.



And guess what? Yep, there is a search option for CDs and DVDs too. I did a couple test searches and the results actually had a couple things in them that I've already liked (and of course some things I'm not too sure). Bottom line...it may not be the answer to my troubles, but it might lead me in the direction of a fun read or listen from time to time. Thought you might want to check it out too.

i am the exact same way. not sure i'd say i am a snob, but i read all the books by the author and then feel like i lost a friend or something.

Well, I'll be darned! That's really cool. I may or may not have similar issues with books. And movies, actually.
