New Web App Recommends Books Based on Your Tweets

Reading a book is a significant investment of time. That’s why it’s common to ask friends for recommendations when looking for interesting literature. If you haven’t said it yourself, you’ve probably heard someone say the common refrain: “Read any good books lately?”

That method has worked fairly well thus far, but an innovative new web app sources recommendations from the person who knows you best — you.

Simply insert your Twitter handle into BookRx, and seconds later the app produces a list of categories and specific books you might enjoy. The app, which was launched yesterday, is a product of Northwestern University’s Knight Lab. Shawn O’Banion, a third-year PhD student, worked with his professor, Larry Birnbaum, to create BookRx.
