Remember when discovering a new book was always a fun experience? Any more, one feels battered by vendor advertisements or lost deep in the machine that is Goodreads.
Enter Shepherd.com – now in beta, but eminently functional.
Tell me where else you could find human-curated (actually, author-curated) lists of:
- The best bloody and tasty books about the brilliance, cruelty, and especially the food, of the Italian Renaissance.
- The best books of poems for people who don’t usually read them
- The best historical novels featuring Jazz-age mysteries by the sea
- The best books about failing to write a book
Or browse by Wikipedia topic and find a treasure trove of books on friendship, China, or Magic-Supernatural, for example.
Recommended by your website editor as a fun and positive and most interesting browse.
