Lifehacker’s got a list of the “Five Best Book Recommendation Services.” We’d like to add, ahem, independent booksellers. Although actually…you know what, screw being polite. We’re throwing down. We challenge anything and anyone to a recommendations-off, because we still think individual experience and personal attention are better than any database or line of code. If you just want general recs, check out our Staff Recommends page, but we also welcome you to comment with a favorite title or genre or anything else, and we’ll tell you some other things we think you’ll like. Come on, hit us! It’ll be just like John Henry vs. the steam engine…only hopefully without us keeling over dead at the end.
Spread the world! We challenge all-comers. May the best rec win!
