I'm always on the lookout for interesting book sites and I found one the other day. Literature-map.com is an innovative way to find new authors. You type in an author and it will show you a map with other authors that score similarly in their algorithm.
I'm thinking this looks fun, so I did some exploring. I was thinking about linking to their site, but I always ask permission before I do any deep linking. The site is part of a larger network of sites run by flork.com. Flork.com requires a login to dig deeper, so I filled out the obligatory form and waited for my login to be activated. This is what I received:
Sorry, but you have not been accepted into the Flork Community. To keep flork an exciting place, only people with interesting profiles are accepted.
Gee, I didn't know it was an audition. I guess FictionDB won't be linking to literature-map after all.
And I AM an interesting person. I am! I am! Sniff...sniff.
