Well, here's a new way to find an author whose books you may want to read:
Simply type in the author's name and you will be giving a list of names of similar authors which float around the screen. Of course, it is potentially headache-inducing (according to the Library Stuff blog) since they never really stop moving. Also, I tried Dan Brown as an author and Nora Roberts was one of the authors listed for him. Not sure how that relates since those reading Dan Brown may not be so interested in Nora Roberts. Best explanation I can come up with is that they are both quite popular authors.
