Hey I LOVE this! The slider only needs to be moved just a little in either direction to change the selection of books. This site is defintely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

It would be good if it had a reverse search. ie given that I have read a book I could input it and find out how it is ranked. Then one could find more reading to ones liking.

I made contact with the site and asked about the reverse search. This is an excerpt from their helpful and interesting reply.

"... We took a decision not to go for reverse searching ... partly to avoid getting embroiled in endless challenges (especially from writers!) - and partly as we didn't want the focus on the ratings more than the books. We suggest if a user finds any setting generally too low or high for their preference they adjust upwards or downwards. The system tries to be internally consistent. ... "
