Slight interruption…

I know I normally post about the books I read (next review coming soon…) but I felt I must post about the Borders “Spookily Accurate” book suggester…

Here is the link.

You type in the author of a book you recently read and enjoyed and the book suggestor will list similar authors to try.

Ok, lets see, thought I.

I tried: Elizabeth Hanbury.

Book Suggestor: No results

I tried: Pamela Morsi

Book Suggestor: No results

I tried: Nell Dixon

Book Suggestor: No results.(Even though Nell is now a Little Black Dress author with a new book out)

In fact, unless it was a well known author in the UK, the book suggestor didn’t come back with anything. It did work for Meg Cabot, JKR, BUT not for Eleanor Updale and Montmorency!!! This piece of software needs serious work and is typical of large companies. They only go for the mainstream.

Whilst I do try and support my local indie bookshop wherever possible, I do like Borders for certain books because they often have US imported titles not available even from orders by indies. They also have a lovely big romance section! So, sort it Borders please!
