A Look at Shelf Joy

shelf-recommendEver wonder what kinds of books Ernest Hemmingway might have recommended to young writers? Ever wish there was a place to find books like that? Well, enter Shelf Joy, a far-ranging collection of books from the shelves of famous and infamous people.

The brainchild of Aakanksha Gaur, Shelf Joy has now passed the threshold of 100,000 book recommendations. That’s saying something! Each snippet of book recommendations is linked to a person (say Bill Gates, or David Bowie) or a group of like-minded people.

How about the books that were sold at the recent Berkshire Hathaway Mettings, like Getting There or Limping on Water, who knew?

My friends and relative always recommend books to me, and now I can take a look at books read and enjoyed by people I admire. That’s a cool concept. I applaud Aakanksha for comming up with a new idea that’s both interesting and a lot of fun. Take a look, you’ll enjoy the site!
