BookLamp is a just launched book recommendation website with a unique twist - a computer does all the recommending.
Researchers from several universities scanned in thousands of books and then broke them down into their thematic elements (for example, 'travel' or 'pregnancy' or even 'rocky terrain'), so computers can analyze what elements are present in the books you like, and then match those same elements with books to be recommended.
It can be a bit hit-or-miss as far as its recommendations go, but there's no denying it's an interesting approach. You can read more about it here in an interesting article by Laura Miller on Salon.com.
