I’ve tried Goodreads and StoryGraph, but neither gives good recs. It seems like an easy problem to solve: just look at my book ratings (or even just authors I like), and recommend books that other people who have similar tastes also liked (ie. k-means matching). Is there an app that does this?
For example, I like:
– Greg Egan
– Ted Chiang
– Joan Didion
– Oliver Sacks
Surely if you get a list of favorite authors like this from a few hundred people, you could trivially recommend new authors to people?
