Start the Week – 3 October

Some book related links this week:

  • BookLamp aims to match you with authors you might like based on the charateristics of books you already enjoy. In true 2.0 style it’s in Beta at the moment, but definately worth a look.
  • Goodreads is another book recommending tool (this time from other users). It also acts like a virtual bookshelf allowing you to organise your books into those you’ve read, and those you want to read.
  • EatYourBooks is a very interesting site that indexes cookbooks, magazines, and even recipe blogs. By adding the cookbooks you own to your collection you are able to search across them all to find out which ones contain particular recipes, e.g. recipes for a particular ingredient. Currently the indexing is done by the EatYourBooks team, but they plan to introduce user indexing – perfect for librarians with some time to kill!
