Introducing a new category of posts: things that aren't books! I'll use the "Thinklings" section to post anything that isn't actually a book review: links to good sites, random thoughts on reading, etc.
From a friend's site, I found a link to Whichbook, which is an interesting take on book searches. It allows you to search for book recommendations by selecting a 1-10 scale on various criteria like "larger than life vs. down to earth" or "beautiful vs. disgusting" or "optimistic vs. bleak." There's also a separate search by character, setting, and plot.
I haven't played with it much yet, but it looks like a fun way to pick a book to read (if I didn't already have a list of hundreds).
