Readalike is a venture NRD Media hope to launch soon. It is to be a free online resource to find new books you’ll enjoy reading, discovering new authors as you go.
This idea came about when I discovered that I had read all of the books by one of my favourite authors, Stephen Baxter. Browsing through Amazon I saw the “related products” featured below some of the books I had already read, and realised that a lot the books where not of the same genre, and most certainly not something I would enjoy. I concluded that the related products section is partly driven by publishing companies paying Amazon to appear in those places, rather than Amazon suggesting books I would like to read because they were similar in nature to books I or others had bought previously.
