Find your next bookTurn to technology to discover your next favorite book. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on several resources to help readers get recommendations on what to pick up next.
Let's say you just finished a book and you don't know what to read next. Where do you turn? Instead of just randomly picking up another paperback or consulting a friend- Try the website, what should I read next. It's like the Netflix or Pandora for readers. Input the title of a beloved book or an author, and the site will make several recommendations, based on some of the common trades. I wish the site were a bit more robust with rating features and book descriptions, but it's a good place to start for a recommendation. Readers on the go should also try the sister site Where Should I Read Next. Click on a country of interest or one that you'll be visiting and up pops a list of recommended reading featuring that exotic local or authors from that country. A book group is a great way to discover new books and exchange ideas with other readers. Take your book club into the virtual world with Goodreads.com. Locate a group based on types of books or members, join, and start reading and discussing topics online. In San Francisco, I'm [UNKNOWN] Cnet.com for CBS News. [MUSIC]
