I stumbled across this great website called Gnooks, where you can get author or book recommendations based on authors you already enjoy. While many sites have algorithms that generate recommendations based on preferences, I feel this program creates more interesting if not better suggestions.

My favorite function on Gnooks is the literature map. This program generates a map of authors based on any name that you enter. You can also click any of the names on the map to create a new map.

The other great function is Gnod's Suggestions. After entering three authors you like, you are given a string of recommendations based on your input. The website appears to have similar functions for music and movies, so if you have a free minute, I would highly recommend a visit.
