Today’s topic: Recommendations. Do you use LT’s recommendations feature? Have you found any good books by using it? Do you use the anti-recommendations, or the “special sauce” recommendations? How do you find out about books you want to read?
I DO use LibraryThing to get most of my suggestions, but I don’t really use the formal recommendation tools. Yes, I looked at and played with the recommendation features when Tim updated them recently, but I didn’t actually use them to add any books to my wishlist.
The main way I find out about books I want to read? LibraryThing’s ‘Talk’. I like hearing what other people are reading, what they have enjoyed, what they just can’t stop talking about. Other than that, most of what I read comes from the ARCs I receive, followed by book club selections, Dear Reader emails, and the odd books I hear about here and there in my non-virtual life.
