This is a link we’ve had in the files for quite some time now… Even though the titles aren’t quite so fresh, it’s still a fun tool. The Seattle Times created interactive book recommendations based on reviews from the paper.
You know what’s even more fun, though? Visiting a local independent bookshop to ask a bookseller (or a few of them!) what they might recommend for you. (We like looking at the staff picks and trying to figure out which bookseller reads the most like us, then trying something new that they recommend.)
Have you followed the New York Times’ “Match Book” column with advice for readers? Do they do as well as your favorite bookseller or librarian?
You can also browse our archives for recommendations: Face Outs from booksellers, One Nightstands from readers who shop locally at independent bookstores, and teen reviewers‘ posts from teen readers around the region.
What ways do you find new books to try?
