Handy for your summer reading list:

Type in a book and author you liked and it will give you a list of similar suggestions:

This one is WAY cool. Enter the name of a favorite author and you'll get a display with your pick in the center. The closer a name sits to your favorite, the greater likelihood you will like their work.

okay, these are seriously fascinating (and i might have to post a link to you on my blog), but the literature-map thing is not entirely accurate. i know they're working off of some kind of surveyed data, but really? if i like c.s. lewis, i'll like robert frost? can't stand those snowy trees and untraveled roads. and what does narnia have to do with monty python?
