What Should I Read Next?

What should I read next? Isn’t this a question we ask ourselves way too often? What should I read next? As lovers of words and literature, many of us are faced with too many options and too little time. We often ask for personal recommendations from friends, family, librarians or even grocers. Yet, the internet with all, its interesting facets is making it easier and easier to find what we want. 
Angie here sharing a site I found recently that is basically like Pandora for books. If you haven’t heard of Pandora—first off, you are way behind the times—it is internet radio. Plug in a song or artist you like and it plays other songs that are similar. The site is called What Should I Read Next. It is very simple. Type in the name of a book you like and it displays the name of the book and the genres that book falls under. It will automatically give you a list of all the books that are similar at first, but by simply clicking on a genre, you can narrow down your choices. It lists in order of popularity on the site itself.
So, although checking out book reviews on blogs like Sher A. Hart can be useful in finding what to read, it is not your only option. When you finish the book you are currently reading, check out whatshouldireadnext.com and keep reading!
Live life on the edge—read.

  1. Interesting. With Pandora, though, you can listen for a few seconds, and if you don’t like a song, you can move on to the next song fairly quickly. I’ve found a lot of good music that way. With books, you have to dedicate more time to each suggested book, so the interaction will be a little diifferent. I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. This site sounds very interesting. I have never heard of it- but will definitely check it out. I love Pandora- especially being able to skip songs I don’t like. I have also stumbled upon many new songs and artists from their mix of music. 🙂

    • Ya I totally agree, you should also check out spotify if you haven’t yet. I like it better than Pandora. But the site is cool, I feel like its best use is when you really like a specific book and are in the mood to read one a lot like it.

  3. I LOVE Pandora! I only wish I had it in my car. Thanks for sharing this great site. I have plenty to read, but never get tired of adding to my list. Great post! I hope you and your family are doing well.


  4. I’ve not heard of that site. Will definitely have to check it out; sounds like a great resource! Thanks for linking up with Booknificent Thursday!
