Discover New Authors

Read everything by your favorite author and looking for something new? Give Literature-Map, the tourist map of literature, a try!

Go to http://www.literature-map.com/. You will be asked to enter the name of an author you like. Click "continue" and Literature-Map will create a visual map of author names related to your favorite. The closer two authors are, the more likely someone will like both of them.

I tried Lisa Scottoline and received this (her name is in the middle of the map):

I have enjoyed some of the authors in the map, but also see many I haven't tried yet. If I select a name closest to my search of "Lisa Scottoline," it's more likely I'll like their writing, too.

So if you're looking for something new this summer, give Literature-Map a try. There's nothin' better than discovering new authors to love, especially in the lazy days of summer!
