It is pretty amazing what the small team at BookLamp managed to achieve… a sort of Pandora for books.
The example below is stunning…
“Here’s a look at how the BookLamp technology works — as represented by a graphic created by Digital Book World for a visualization article on the works of Stephen King. In this example above, its scan of King’s “Salem’s Lot” found the prevalence of ‘vampires & the supernatural’, ‘funerals / death/ memorials’, ‘homes & domestic environments’, and ‘pain & fear / negative emotions’.”
One feature that was missing for Apple is “You like this book? we recommend you this other book”.
