October 2, 2012

This week’s link is practical and fun. And who doesn’t like a little fun?

Booksai is a site with a tool to discover books and authors with similar tones, styles, and moods.  Just plug in a passage from your favorite book, and presto! A list of comparable books are given, and in several genres, too!

Readers can use Booksai to find recommendations based on a book they enjoyed that is driven by author style rather than the traditional sales ranking and purchasing history. Pretty nifty, eh?

Authors can use Booksai to see which other authors might resemble their writing style. The results are given by percentages in similarity and complexity. How cool is that?
