Enter in your information and hit go and books are suggested. Half the fun is the intro so I suggest you not skip it.
Try the Bookulating Suggest-O-Mometer
I asked for science fiction. It recommended Tuesdays with Morrie, Conservatives Without Conscience, and Buddha is as Buddha Does.
When I changed one parameter (from Purpose to Pleasure), it recommended The Glass Castle and A Virgin's Guide to Mexico. (Earlier, using those same parameters, it had recommended different books that also had nothing to do with science fiction.)
I want to like this but I guess I don't understand how it works. (I didn't watch the introduction because I'm at work.) Does it even look at the Hobbies/Interest choice at all?
On the other hand, I didn't watch the introduction because it never started (unless staring at a blank TV screen constitutes an introduction).
The results I got seemed at least as random as those cited by Anonymous above. But hey, the page itself is cute...

You must need some sort of plugin for the video to play
Well, it makes sense as an explanation for why it didn't play. Since I know Flash is installed on my machine, and since most videos from anywhere play just fine, it sure doesn't make sense overall. Anyway, thanks for the explanation. Most likely Firefox had a little line above the window saying that and I just ignored it, as I ignore all the "Firefox prevented popup ads from displaying" messages.
