Book Recommendation App

BookRx: A Web App That Recommends Books Based On Tweets

Hey bookworm, if you're already looking for your next read, the answer lies in your tweets. BookRx is a book prescription engine that analyzes hashtags, accounts followed, and words used frequently to create custom reading suggestions.

Just enter in a Twitter handle, and BookRX will match the account to six or seven different subjects of interest, offering the top-selling and most iconic books in each category.

The web app isn't perfect (it thought #pizza was most directly related to science and technology), but it's a neat artificial intelligence experiment by Northwestern University's Knight Lab. Give it a try and tell us — what do your tweets say about your reading preferences?

It's not a bad idea but it doesn't work... You should try this little new app called "Gus" (www.gusapp.com). Gus' recommendations are much better than those from Amazon and the app is dead simple. Cheers
