Booklamp: A novel new book recommendation service.

BookLamp is a new kind of book recommendation tool that matches the actual style and content of the text of a book to similar books.

Assessing over 30,000 points of data, sophisticated algorithms are used to construct what Booklamp calls a book's "DNA". Each book on the site has story, language and character DNA, made up of different elements like settings, actors, dialog and description. Users on the site can enter the name of an author or a book title they like and BookLamp will find books with a similar DNA. Almost 20,000 books have been cataloged.
