O'Dell recommends some tools that will help librarians fake the sites when serving their patrons, that will change their reader's advisory (RA) life. These include TasteDive (formerly TasteKid) which uses data from its other users to make recommendations for reader based on the popular search, social interaction and genre. Goodreads launched in 2007 and is the oldest, but most successful, recommendation tool on the list, when searching for a particular book title, the user can see books that are similar to the title that other readers enjoyed. Fantastic Fiction is a collection of fiction books and fiction author pages, this is a great feature for patrons who check in regularly, anticipating their favorite author's next book.
