Books and Reading: Authors

Sydney Writers' Festival

22 - 28 May 2017

Finding an Author

Just type in the author's name and you'll get a 'map' of other authors you might like. The closer the new author's name is to the one you put in, the more similar they are.

What Should I Read Next?

Enter a book you like and the website will analyse its huge database of real readers' favourite books to provide book recommendations and suggestions for what to read next.
