Caro said, I’ve never found the Amazon New Releases particularly helpful because the only thing they seem to list is what’s at the top of the sales list. Far more useful is the recommendations that are based on my ratings and past purchases, because if there’s an author I click “not interestedâ€ for, they don’t show back up in the list.
So, this is an interesting question: what does Amazon recommend for you?
Since the growing addiction to Books(not)Free, my recommendations are less than reflective of my recent purchases, mostly because I haven’t made any recent purchases.
For example, out of the top 8, five are Julia Quinn novels, and of that five, I’ve already read three. Time to do some grooming of the recommendations list.
But one author I don’t think I’ve read appears at #8: Sabrina Jeffries’ Royal Brotherhood series. Judging from the titles, Princes are having no problems getting some. Anyone have a reaction to this series? Worth the clickity click click, not to mention the bling bling? (Because you know I have to hock a diamond to afford a paperback these days!)
Beyond that, several LKH’s later and a manic clicking of the “not interested” button, I have a rather curious recommendations list – and keep in mind, this is like telling you what uncool manner of music I listen to:
5. The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown, by Julia Quinn et al.
4. Industrial Magic: Women of the Otherworld, by Kelley Armstrong
3. Dead to the World, by Charlaine Harris
2. The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, by Kim Harrison
1. When He Was Wicked, by Julia Quinn
What’s on yours?
