Decisions, Decisions - Which Book to Read?

Not strictly e-learning but a novel way (excuse the pun) of choosing books you might like to read based on your preferences.

When you know the title of a book, it's easy to find it by searching the shelves in a bookshop or library or by using a catalogue or an online bookstore. But what if you are like me, the sort of reader who likes to choose by browsing round a little and seeing what tempts you? In this case, whichbook might be a good solution to help you find that perfect read.

Using simple sliders to indicate your preferences, it allows you to choose based on other things such as plot shape, type of main character, country the book is set in.

So instead of looking for a crime novel, you can look for a book that is unpredictable, very romantic and a little bit sad. Or a challenging book that's also funny with plenty of adventure. You can then browse its list of recommendations. But don't worry, if you don't fancy any of the books offered, change your choices and try again - there are 20 million different individual choices possible.
