In search of a good book?

My good friend the Network Geek posted this on his blog, but I wanted to keep a record of the site and let my readership know about it too. is an intriguing tool to help you pick fiction. It presents you with 12 different scales that their books are rated on.

Happy --- Sad
Funny --- Serious
Safe--- Disturbing
Expected ---Unpredictable
Larger than life---Down to Earth
No sex---Sex

When you click on any of these attributes a slider appears so you can choose a point between the two extremes. You can choose a maximum of 4 attributes and then hit 'Go'. The website will then give you a list of books that meet you criteria

(You can also search via Character, Plot and Setting but the sliders are more fun and yield unexpected results)

If you play with the site put a comment on here with what book it's telling you to read.

My next book according to this site is 'Easter' by Michael Arditti.

Seems I'm supposed to read The Same Earth by Kei Miller. Never heard of it. Maybe I'll see if the library has it and check it out.
