BookLikes Helps You Find Your Next Book

This is one of a number of new websites that launched at Mini Seedcamp New York on Tuesday.

BookLikes, which just went into public beta, wants to build a new way for you to discover new books you might want to read. The site is billing itself as “the missing link between Amazon and Facebook”, and it functions in much the same way as Discovereads (now part of GoodReads).

BookLikes is built on a new recommendation algorithm, one that was developed for the site. The algorithm takes into consideration various details like reading preferences, general book information and social activity, and then it tries to provide a personalized recommendation.
