Whichbook–a site to use for recommending choice books to your students

Last week a fellow teacher shared the Whichbook website with me, which is dedicated to helping you find your next book to read.

There are book lists on the page for you to scroll through, and on the left, there are spectrums for you to choose–happy/sad, beautiful/disgusting, gentle/violent. By changing the settings on these, the books on the lists will change. The picture below shows the results.

I can see myself using this in class to help readers who have very specific reading preferences find their next book to read.  I have to admit, I spent almost an hour fiddling around with the different settings and seeing the results.  Check it out and see what your next book might be!
