In July, The Things You Can Read wrote a post entitled How to Answer the Questions: What Should I Read Next?, which offered several resources that matched or generated book suggestions based on books you have already enjoyed. Well, LibraryThing has just announced its partnership with Portland Public Library's BookPsychic, which is a similar resource. Here is what LibraryThing has to say in their post regarding BookPsychic:
As you rate books and DVDs there, BookPsychic learns more and more about your tastes, and comes up with recommendation lists. And everything shown or recommended is available at your library. Simple “bookstore” genres, like “Recent fiction” and “History,” help you zero in on the books you want.
We’ve partnered with Portland Public Library, in Portland, Maine, as the first library to go with BookPsychic. You can read their blog post or go straight to their BookPsychic. Please note that the recommendations you get will come from Portland Public Library’s holdings.
BookPsychic works without any sign-up process at all. To save your ratings and recommendations, however, we’ve made it easy to sign up or sign in through Facebook, Twitter and LibraryThing. If you’ve rated books elsewhere, you can import them from Facebook, LibraryThing or Goodreads. For more details about how BookPsychic works, see the About BookPsychic page
