How it works: LibraryThing analyses the more than 180 million books and 185 million tags LibraryThing members have added, and comes back with reading suggestions.

Notes: (1) "Books with similar library subjects and classifications" mines what LibraryThing knows about library-assigned subjects (mostly Library of Congress Subject Headings), Library of Congress Classifications (LCC) and the Dewey Decimal Classifications (DDC). (2) The Amazon recommendations exclude items for which the Amazon API omits International Standard Book Numbers (ISBNs), usually because the item is not a book.
