    words! I devour them, yet still I hunger.
    Wonder what to read next? I found this interesting idea that helps you discover new books. It's called Story Codes. Check it out and see what you think :)

    I also helps the designer to make loads of money without doing anything since it's an affiliation network.

    I've registered and intend to plot in a few of my fav books and a few of my hate books, and then I'll see what it suggests I might like, if it suggests books I already know and dislike - well, that'll show us how much it's worth. But what the heck...if nothing else I'll see some titles I've never seen before. Can't hurt :p

    I'd much rather rely on serendipty and reccomendations from friends,family, magazines, and websites like this one.

    This kind of reminds me of Pandora, otherwise known as the Music Genome Project. It's a pretty cool concept, but I think that I'm with the others when I say that I'll find mine the usual way :).

    I have only one way to find non-Danish books: Browse the web. And that's what I do. I would never buy a book based only on a rating on that site. But that site might draw my attention to a title I had not previously heard of, and such might warrant further investigation. So there we go. It goes by simple comparison - if you liked this, you may also like this. I can always come here and ask about any title I find on there that I find worth checking out.

    From friends

    I like buying books that are recommended by friends or presented in cultural magazines, actually I like reading a book review before buying it. And I also buy the latest of my favourite author usually, or look for it.
    Oh, and I never judge a book by its cover.....or movie.:rolleyes:
