Now That's What I'm Talking About!

A system that analyzes the content of books and suggests new books for you to read based on the amounts of dialog and action, the density, the pacing, and a couple of other factors. The books currently in the beta are heavily skewed towards science fiction, which is a genre I haven't really read in since I was 16, so I can't say how well it works based on what's in there now. But kudos for the general concept!

The Slashdot story has links to more background on the project and the person behind it.

This is really interesting... although I do read SF and F on a regular basis and I've read exactly one of the titles they've listed. I've heard of many of the others, but not read them.
