The Seattle Public Library has launched a new service called “Next 5 Books,” designed to provide personalized reading lists for patrons. All you have to do is fill out a short form (which takes five to ten minutes to complete), and a few days later the SPL staff will send you a list of five books recommended specially for you.
From the press release:
To get your list, go to http://www.spl.org/yournext5. Fill out a brief form on what you like to read, including favorite genres, preferred format (book on CD, e-book, large print, etc.) and books that you haven’t liked.
In a day or two you will receive a list of five recommended books just for you.
This service is made possible in part by a grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation with help from The Seattle Public Library Foundation.
