Find the book you want to read with BookLikes

Booklikes

Booklikes

BookLikes is a resource that helps you in choosing which books to read according to your preference. When looking for a book to read, people generally depend on people with similar interests to make a recommendation. BookLikes makes it simple for you to interact with people of shared interests so that you get to read books that you want to read.

This excellent resource for bibliophiles uses an algorithm to recommend people who have similar interests in reading so that you can exchange not only books, but have discussions about them and their authors too.

BookLikes uses a unique algorithm that takes into account factors like reading preferences, book information and social activity to provide exact recommendations. A strong social connectedness where a user can share his/her bookshelf with their contacts on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn makes BookLikes exciting.

BookLikes looks especially beneficial when you consider how hard it is to grab a book that you are confident of liking. If you end up buying books that you do not finish reading, it is a sorry investment of your time and money. BookLikes is seen as “the missing link between Amazon and Facebook”.

On their website, booklikes.com, users are categorized into genres like biographies & autobiographies, business, historical fiction, mystery and crime, thrillers, horror, sci-fi and so on. A newbie can simply “follow” these people and discuss the genre.

The site also suggests people that you may know, most popular users and most active users. You can simply search for a book with the book title or the name of the author and see how many people on BookLikes have the book on their BookLikes. This is not only a good way to connect with readers, but is also beneficial for authors to connect with the readers of their books.

Within six months, BookLikes will be available in six more languages namely Chinese, Spanish, German, French, Japanese and Polish.
