Book Recommenders, Anyone?

How often do you get asked to recommend a book? Here are two websites that try to help with this process. I like "What should I read next" because to generates a longish list of similar themed titles. Each book is linked to the Amazon website for a cover pic, reviews and reader feeback. (You can even order the book online if you want!)

Bookseer has a very retro and charming interface. The results aren't as good as WSIRN, but maybe that's because LibraryThing wasn't returning results when I tried it.
