Amazon Lets You Browse Your Digital Library and Get Recommendations For New Titles





Amazon on Wednesday launched “Your Books,” a new section on its site designed to help you dig through all the books you’ve read, purchased, borrowed or saved.

The section will also offer personalized recommendations based on your library of e-books, which can be saved to wish lists. The page offers suggested filters to let you find specific titles, or let you sort by recency or alphabetically. You can also organize by genre, author, or series.

Your Reads sits alongside Goodreads, a site that also lets you generate a database of books, along with annotations, quotes, and reviews. Amazon purchased Goodreads more than a decade ago, although it hasn’t had a meaningful update in years. The site has been plagued by controversy over the last year, with accusations of review-bombing tanking books before they come out.

While Goodreads was designed for readers really into books, Your Books appears to be a place to largely browse your library, and not get reviews or go in-depth into any title. A lot of the focus is also on finding new titles to read and purchase. There’s a “Discovery Mode” that offers suggestions based on titles in your library.

In addition to your ebooks, the section also keeps track of your Audible audiobooks as well.
