Literature-map.com

I have several books to go with the authors that I am reading right now so I do not need this as yet but will eventually need to ability to find new authors to add to my list of the authors that I have read. I have heard about the literature map, had good a tool is the map in finding new authors that you like to read?

It's fun to play with, and it does seem to have a unique algorithm, but I've gotten some atrocious results too. I'd still trust word-of-mouth more.

What good online tools do you know about to find new authors? My pals and friends do not read the sorts of litterature that I read. They are mostly into biographys and auto-biographies, not something that I preferr to read. I know that I can always ask here.

The only online "tools" I use are blogs and review sites whose tastes I've become familiar with. And "What are you reading now" threads on forums I frequent enough to know who likes (and who dislikes) what. "Word of mouth" still works on the internet.

That and I don't worry too much about picking up an author that I may not like. I just stop reading that (if I find it unbearable) and turn to something else.

Reading by the boatload's still the best "tool" though. There's really no shortcuts to finding new authors you love. I, for one, hope there never is. Part of the journey, and all.
