For example:

Post 1: I'd like to read a book like Example the First.
Post 2: I'd like to read a book about testing.
Post 3: I'd like to read a book like Example Author's books
Post 4: *Quotes Post 2* Try the book called Test 1. You may like it
Post 5: I'd like to read a book about example.com
Post 6: *Quotes Post 5* I think you may like All about iana
Post 7: *Quotes Post 1* How about Example the second?
Post 8: *Quotes Post 3* How about Example Writer's books? Maybe the Death of Example?

It was just to say there's no order. Just look at Post 1 and Post 7 to see what I mean.

Quite possibly the best website ever created: http://bookseer.com/

I use it all the time to find new books.

You don't have to make everything 'efficient' and 'ordered'. The best book recs I get are just from chatting with friends.

LOL on both of those links, when I put in books, it came up with books I had already read. I mostly find my books by roaming Amazon.

I have not read his books but they are hardly praised and his film Mirrormask was out of this world and good.

You MUST read his books, I've read Stardust, Anansi Boys, and Coraline. Stardust was SO original(but the movie was better), Anansi Boys was just brilliant, and Coraline is very spooky but in a semi-kid friendly way.
