What to Read Next?

It’s summertime – for some, that’s the time when they actually read books for enjoyment. Although I don’t normally read a whole bunch (I know, I’m a failure of a librarian), I did just finish my second book of the year. Be nice now, because that’s twice as many as I read last year.

Anyway, I’ve kind of gotten the hang of this whole ‘reading’ thing and decided that I wouldn’t mind reading ANOTHER book. Whoa.

But here’s my dilemma – what do I read next? I could either A) ask anyone else that works here for recommendations or…

B) use the Book Seer to offer suggestions on my next literary adventure. To put it to the test, I just finished reading Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs (good stuff). The Book Seer thought that I would also enjoy A Million Little Pieces by James Frey or Stuart: A Life Backwards by Alexander Masters, as well as other titles by Burroughs and Frey.

Just make sure that you actually liked the book that you just finished reading when using the Book Seer. Otherwise, you’re stuck with another bomb.

Thanks to Patty (and Lifehacker) for the link!
