What Should You Read Next?
Have you read EVERYTHING from your favorite author? Stumped about what to read next? Check out these sites that recommend authors based on which authors you already like to read!
LibraryThing is a powerful online book-cataloging tool. Non-members can browse the lists and suggestions but in order to take advantage of the massive catalog of millions of books and the tastes of their owners you should really sign up and enter in some of your favorites to build a personal virtual library.
GoodReads is a book lover's site with great features like interviews with authors, book trivia, book swap events, and more. Most notable however are the lists. We're not talking lists of questionable quality by one person, we're talking lists compiled with the inputs of thousands and thousands of users.
