HOW IT WORKS
The application in use occasionally asks simple questions. It identifies the nature of characters, writing style of book, various story lines, etc. Identified information will be used when establishing the recommendation list.
Different view of book recommendation
Most of the recommendations of books creates a list based on three basic principles:
- First, give me a book that you like and I recommend further
- Second, give me your friends and I will tell you what they like
- Third, tell me at the beginning what you read and I will recommend you what to do next.
So we decided to create a recommendation system in the style of the music streaming services like pandora radio, spotify etc. Where the playlist is formed based on various songs in real time. We decided to implement this idea also to the world of books recommendation.
Just enter from one to three books that you like then Readster creates a list based on their matching properties.
