Maybe, but I get the impression that a lot of people like the recommendations type features. For someone like myself, and perhaps you, it is an annoyance since I don't obtain books through Kobo's store. Yet for someone who is looking for their next read and is going to buy from Kobo, it is probably a convenience.
