There's a new kid on the block and its name is SHEPHERD, where a reader hungry for more books can easily find books similar to the genre, style and type that has just been enjoyed.
In the words of Shepherd's founder Ben Fox:
"Shepherd is reimagining book discovery for the online world.
I love walking around bookstores and browsing until something grabs my attention. I am reimagining that feeling for the online world. I want to help readers bump into books they would otherwise not find and give them ways to follow their curiosity between topics and concepts.
And, I want to help authors meet more readers. Authors illuminate our world, take us on faraway journeys, and entertain us. There is a growing trend that authors have to become their own marketing team. That concerns me because it is very difficult to do and it takes time away from writing. I want to make it easier for authors to market themselves and sell more books.
I love wandering around bookstores and letting random books capture my attention. Nothing will ever replace the “bookstore experience”, but I want to reimagine book discovery online with a lot more serendipity and delight."
Here are two "best book lists" I've written for Shepherd.
THE BEST BOOKS ON MAGICAL REALISM
THE BEST BOOKS FOR FINDING HOPE AND INSPIRATION
There are many more lists of the best books on, well, on just about every topic you can think of and many more reading topics you haven't even thought of to discover.
