HOW We Recommend Books & Movies Just for You

HOW We Recommend Books & Movies Just for You

Have you seen the Personalized Picks section on our website, where you tell us what you like and we create a list of book, movie and music recommendations just for you?

Oh sure, there are book recommendation websites out there, but their suggestions are generated using a computer algorithm, which means the connection between something you like and what is recommended to you sometimes doesn’t make sense.
