    I've been wanting someone to make this site for a long time and I just found one. Its young but has potential. www.bookswelike.net sign up and start recommending your favorite books, tell others to make this place grow.

    If you buy a book through there website they get a cut too keep the site running.

    I'm getting this message:

    Oh well...I will be sure to check it out another time though. I'm interested to see how it compares to Amazon's recommendations, I love trawling through people's lists/recommendations etc with the hope of uncovering some gems.

    looks like they need a new server/host

    Or we need to find an alternative site :)

    The site works for me, I am checking it out now. It looks like it could keep me occupied for quite a while.

    whats neat is after you recommend a few books it will compare those to other peoples recommendations and put the people who have the same books recommended at the top of your page. Then you can go check out the books that they like that you don't know about.
