What should I read next?

What should I read next?

Enter the title and author into this search and the online book database will compare what other readers (who have read your book) have also enjoyed. Give it a whirl. It’s pretty neat.

You get some really weird results with this one. I typed in “The Travels of a T-shirt in the Global Economy” by Pietra Rivoli. It’s a good examination of globalization using a well-known product. What do I get as a recommendation? Fahrenheit 451 and The Catcher in the Rye. Huh?

Yeah, I have a feeling that your example probably wasn’t in their database. The more people that use this database the more accurate it will become.

I tested it with Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson and it was very accurate within the genre. I actually got several books returned in the results that I have read already.

  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?

  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
