WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Book recommendations for the lazy among us

What Should I Read Next?

 

Let’s say you just finished reading a book. You enjoyed it. You’re interested in reading another book kind of like it, or maybe at least in the same pigeonhole. Oh, and you’re kind of lazy too. Now there’s What Should I Read Next?

You just type a title or author into the search box and other readers’ recommendations pop up on a nice big list, with a tab next to each title that says “Info/Buy.” I put in Rachel Kushner’s The Flamethrowers and got a list with books ranging from The Great Gatsby to Pnin.

Pretty cool, eh?

    Hmmm, I wonder what it’s criteria is. Sameness? Genre? I prefer my own randomness, I think.

      Agreed, but I do kind of like the grab-bag of titles I probably wouldn’t have thought of.

      Maybe we need one of these things for food: What Should I Eat Next?
