Are the automated book rec algorithms on commercial or social book sites helpful for you?
Yes, I frequently find new books to read, that I then like, through them.
Yes, I've found good books more than once.
Not really. Sometimes potentially interesting books may crop up, but they get lots in many meh or WTF? suggestions.
Not really. The interesting books that come up are mostly ones I've already read or heard from so there is little added value.
No, the suggestions never really fit.
I don't try to find interesting books this way in the first place.
I don't collaborate in getting data mined like this, and do not feed them my reading choices.
