We're pleased to announce a new and/or improved feature: Recommendations.

Well, it's not exactly new, as the previous version had it. But it definitely is improved. Recommendations are generated in the background now, and, currently, are updated every 30 days. They're limited to 120 entries per work, because I said so.

In order to access the recommendations for a book, click the compass icon on a Work page. It will bring up the top 120 most similar works, using a proprietary similarity algorithm that will improve over time.

I for one am excited, as now I'll have a better idea about what else I might like after reading a book or watching a movie.

If you have questions or comments about this or any other feature, existing or anticipated, please do not hesitate to contact us. You may use the feedback widget at the bottom of every page, or may send us a note directly at feedback@whatcharacter.com.

Happy recommendations!
